Beecraigs, 5 June
A damp start to the day gave way to warm sunshine later, and over 300 schoolchildren from all over Scotland competed in the annual Scottish Schools event. There are separate classes for boys and girls, based on academic year, with entrants from P5 upwards. In each class, the top 3 results for the same school are totalled to give the team score.
In the individual results, ESOC juniors did well in various classes:
S1 boys – Gavin Williams 2nd, Jamie Cunningham 5th
S2 boys – Adam Hunter 4th, Jack Conway 7th
S4 girls – Rona Lindsay 1st, Imogen Beck & friend 4th
S4 boys – Andrew Lindsay 3rd
S5/6 girls – Eilidh Nolan 3rd
Commiserations to Craig Nolan, who mispunched (S2 boys).
Katy Lessells planned the courses, and many other senior ESOC members helped on the day. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the event.
See the new Scottish Schools Orienteering Association website for full results.
