British Schools Orienteering Championships

BSOC Podium

On Sunday the 20th of November a group of WCOC juniors travelled to Graves Park in Sheffield to compete in the British Schools Orienteering Championships. We all had a great time and Cockermouth School were runners-up in the secondary school competition!

The area wasn’t too hard navigationally but was a big physical challenge as the terrain was fast. Every member of our team performed well, and we got some great results. Toby Heppell (Year 9), Daniel Heppell (Year 11), Myrtle Ashworth (Year 10) and Emma Crawford (Year 13) all won their categories and returned home with some very nice bobble hats supplied by Big Bobble Hats.

Also, Sophie Crawford (Year 10) and Daisy Rennie (Year 12) positioned 2nd and Isaac Hunter (Year 10) finished 3rd. Well done to everyone who ran on Sunday and contributed towards the Cockermouth School team coming 2nd.

A big thank you to Scott and Lindsay Ashworth for managing the team and taking us down to Sheffield.
