It was the Junior Inter-Regional Championships (JIRC's) this weekend with Individual Races at Chatsworth House and Relays at Carsington Pastures. SO have a number of juniors in the South East Junior Squad (SEJS) - Amelia, Maddie, Sam, Stanley, Ffion, Scarlet & Tommy and they all helped the team to an amazing 4th place. The best result since 2006!

After the Individuals on Saturday SEJS were lying in 5th place out of 12 regions with everything to run for in the Relays on Sunday! They managed to pull that up to a fantastic 4th place after some very exciting relay races, narrowly missing out on a podium position.

Congratulations to our SO juniors and the whole SE Junior Squad on a really excellent performance.

Results can be found here and Will took some photos.
