England took the win by just 3 points at the Junior Home Internationals in Dolgellau, mid-Wales at the weekend 7-8 October. They went into the lead after the individual day on Saturday, and although Scotland put up a good fight, winning both Junior Men’s & Women’s Relays on Sunday, England won overall. Congratulations to the WCOC Juniors who were selected for the England Team and produced some brilliant results - Niamh and Joe H won their courses, with Alastair second and Caitlin third. For full results see MWOC.
