Compass Point Scottish O League 2015

Final SOL league scores for 2015 are now available.  Scores can be found by course or age class.

A prize giving will be arranged shortly - please let me know if you spot any errors/duplications here.

*NOTE: some duplications corrected 1st October affecting M10B, W21E and White course positions.

The SOL5/6 weekend scores are all included. The M21E Middle Distance is used for the ‘Black’ course scores as well as M21E.  W21E includes both races from the weekend, but these do not appear in any course scores as the W21E courses were unique on both days.

Outstanding Win for Scotland

The annual Junior Inter-Regional Championships took place over the weekend of 26&27 September and was hosted by the West Midlands Orienteering Association. 
Scotland won all the trophies – Individual, Relays, Mens, Womens and the Overall cup. Plus Sasha won the trophy for the best performance in the Individual competition.
This was a fantastic performance from the Scottish Juniors who all ran enthusiastically over the whole weekend. Well Done to them all!
