Congratulations to all the WCOC members who made the long trip to Sandringham this weekend for the British Schools Championships. They earned a FANTASTIC result, winning the Large Secondary Schools' trophy (beating rivals Ulverston Victoria by just one point). As part of this success, there were lots of great year group and individual results - Gold for the Y13 girls' team of Katie, Jenn and Kate (winning their age group for an incredible 6th year running!); Gold for the Y9 girls' team of Rosie, Lily and Issy; and Silver for the Y11 boys' team of Alastair, Daniel and Joe; individual Golds for Alastair (Y11) and Rosie (Y9); Silver for Niamh (Y10) and Bronzes for Katie (Y13), Joe (Y10) and Daniel (Y11). A huge thank you to the dedicated teachers who took them! For full results click here.
What a glorious day - perfect for tackling some tough courses! A big thanks to Ange, Rob and Chris for all their hard work and to all the other helpers who contributed to an enjoyable event.
Several WCOC juniors represented the North-West Junior Squad at the JIRCs this weekend. Their good individual results (click here) contributed to the North-West lying in an impressive third place overall after day one, behind leaders Scotland and just one point adrift of the South-West team. More good runs in the relays (click here), helping the NW to secure an excellent second place overall (click here for results) - congratulations to all the team!
