Very close to victory for our Juniors in the Inter Area Competition

by Roger Goddard — 9th September 2015.

Well done to FVO juniors for all their efforts in the Inter Area competition over the weekend – sadly we were narrowly pipped by the North (again!) but that was despite many excellent FVO performances on behalf of the West team. Surely we can do it next year…

In the individual, the first two runners from each area get points, ranging from 6 – 1. FVO runners made up both ‘counters’ for the West Team on Yellow (Jamie H and Ru), Orange (Robin and Jamie P) and Light Green (Peter and Ewan) boys – very impressive!

For the record, and they may not know this, both Jamie Hammond and Lucy Hensman scored points for our team with their superb individual runs on the Sunday – well done to our youngest scorers!!

Grace and Lizzie also both also earned points for the team.

North took the victory for the Individual with 150 points verses 134 for the West

The relays get 24, 20, 16, 12, 8, 4 – with the top two teams from each area to count. Our runners again made a fantastic contribution to this part of the weekend, with Peter and Daniel in the bronze medal team and Jamie in the silver medal team for the boys and Lizzie in the silver team for the girls. West again just behind the north by just 6 points.

So, a big success and lots of fun - looks like Jen & Nicola’s work is already paying offJ

Maybe one of our next training sessions should include how to put on your own bedsheets and downie cover – definitely some room for improvement in this technical skill…!
