YBT final 2016

On Sunday 3rd July the SYO Junior team travelled by coach to the YBT final at Wormley Woods in Hertfordshire. More than 30 juniors ran on behalf of SYO, more than any other club! 13 English clubs competed in the competition with BOK topping the leader board on 874 points. Our noticeably young team performed incredibly well to finish in 6th place with a score of 848, only 3 points behind 4th placed Devon - last year's winners.

South Yorkshire Schools Orienteering Final

Published Thursday, 07 July 2016 11:22

School Games

Hunters Bar Y3/4 Girls Winners

216 pupils aged 7-11 from 28 schools across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield, took to the scenic fields of Canon Hall Country Park to compete in the South Yorkshire School Games, Orienteering Finals. South Yorkshire Orienteers' Colin Best organised the finals in conjunction with South Yorkshire Sport to support and promote orienteering in the region. 

It was wonderful to see so many of our regular schools' league competitors and club members qualifying with their school teams for the finals. The standard of orienteering was excellent, which is testament to the success of the Sheffield Schools' League in developing the sport of orienteering.

In the year 3/4 girls compeition, club members Ciara Keen and Freya Tryner were part of the winning team. Meanwhile, the year 5/6 boys competition was a very close fought affair. SYO's Daniel Hill played an integral part in leading Totley All Saints to a win, narrowly beating Hunters Bar in 2nd (Euan Tryner & Conrad Reuber - both SYO and classmate,Eddie Hall) and Nether Green, who were helped into 3rd place by SYO's Jamie Lightfoot.

The 2016/17 schools' league starts again in Endcliffe Park on Saturday 10th September from 1-3pm in Endcliffe Park and is open to all.
