SSOF 2012

Lanark Racecourse, 6 June

A few ESOC juniors competed at the annual Scottish Schools event, at Lanark Racecourse and Moor Country Park, in slightly damp weather.  The terrain was fast open grassland on the racecourse, and mixed woodland beyond, with lots of paths and some rough open areas.  Schools from all over Scotland competed, and there were over 350 pupils taking part.  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.

ESOC juniors did well in several classes:
  P5/6 girls – Kerry Wood 4th
  S1 girls – Lucy Hart 16th
  S3 boys – Angus Shaw 10th
                   His team (George Heriot’s School) came 2nd in this class. 
  S4 boys – Jamie Cunningham 2nd, Gavin Williams 8th
                   Their team (Stewart’s Melville College) came 2nd in this class.
  S5/6 boys – Craig Nolan had a very good time but sadly missed a control
