Junior Inter-regional Championships

Roxburgh Reivers’ James Tullie played an important part in Scotland’s second place at last weekend’s Junior Inter-Regional Championships. James’ recorded an excellent fifth place against older competition whilst running up a class at the 2002 championships near Kendal, with younger brother Douglas coming in fourth on M14. This, along with several other podium results helped Scotland finish the weekend in second place overall, only a few points behind eventual winners, the North West.

The good performances from Saturday’s Individual event were also replicated on the Sunday during the relays. In the Boys relay, SOA Boys 1, which included James as well as fellow Scotland stars Oleg Cheplin (who won M16 the previous day) and Calum Coombs, finished just 22 seconds behind the North West Orienteering Association’s winning team. This was matched by the girls team, who matched the boys by also finishing in second place.

Full results for the weekend are available from the Lakeland Orienteers Web site.
