Overall, Haileybury won the Seniors’ competition and came second in the Intermediates. Due to a lack of numbers at Under 15 level, we came last in the Juniors. Overall we were second with 197 points to winners Sevenoaks (234 points) but considering we did not compete in three events and one relay, this was an incredible effort. Some of these records have stood since 1979!
Congratulations to the team.
