Orienteers bring home the medals

Schoolchildren on Arran continue to navigate their way to success after securing six individual medals and two team trophies at the Ayrshire Schools’ Orienteering Championships held recently at Fullarton Woods in Troon.

A total of 64 Arran youngsters took part in the event which saw them competing in various age-related categories and courses against other young orienteers from across Ayrshire.

Six boys from Arran High School did particularly well in the 2.4 kilometre orange course which saw a large entry of 42 boys competing in the class. Participants on orange courses have to make tricky decisions about which is the best way to navigate from control to control, and the Arran boys all came home in the top quarter, which was a significant achievement. They also brought home the boys’ team prize for their class.
