Success for Reivers at Scottish Schools Champs

Jedburgh sisters Kirstin and Karen Maxwell both retained their Scottish Schools Orienteering titles at Scone Palace in Perthshire last Friday.

Parkside Primary School pupil Karen easily won the P5/P6 race, finishing over eight minutes ahead of competitors from Glasgow and Edinburgh, with older sister Kirstin, representing Jedburgh Grammar School, winning the S2 race, beating girls from Currie and Douglas.

Not to be outdone, the girls’ father Ian finished in an excellent second place on the tough 15km course of Edinburgh Southern’s Long Orienteering event held high in the Pentland hills on Sunday, with fellow Roxburgh Reiver Lyndsey Knox placed second lady on the 10km course.
