The Dorset Schools Score Championships were held at Moors Valley Country Park on Friday 15th May in very mixed weather. There were several outstanding performances and a number of runners managed to visit all the controls. Afterwards the prize giving was held. In addition to the individual prizes, Burgate School won the senior school team prize and Swanage Middle School won the Primary/Middle section to go with their overall win in the league this year.

 

Congratulations to Lucy Butt, Jack Benham, Tom Butt and Sam Giles, who represented the English Schools team for the ISF World Schools Championships  held near Madrid, Spain in April.

League Events

The final league Tables  are now calculated. Congratulations to all the class winners. It was very tight in the Year 9 Girls class where Emma Crickmore (500 points) just beat Martha Tavinor (498 points)

Congratulations also to Swanage Middle School who retain their league title.

In calculating the results for the last event at Rempstone, my special results spreadsheet struggled a bit because it is set up for eight league events and this year we had nine! So I've slotted results into blank spaces on the grid. I've also not had the time or space to add the names of anyone who was running in the league for the very first time (sorry to Chafyn Grove & Swanage runners if your name is missing from the tables) but I have taken your points into consideration when calculating the team results.

All events offer colour coded courses from White to at least Light Green + something for local adult club orienteers (either a Green, Blue or a Score course). Some events such as Galoppens offer the full range of colour coded courses, but schools competitors only use White to Green. Most events will offer SI punching, bagged & pre-marked maps (late-comers may find they have to use master maps if stocks of overprinted maps run short).

British School Championships Hawley & Hornley  Nov 16
Many schools league regulars competed at this year's championships and there were some spectacular successes. Gold medals were won by Jack Benham (Burgate) & Lucy Butt (S Wilts) in the Year 10 class, and there were Bronze medals for Tom Butt (BWS 12B), Sam Giles (BWS 9B) and Beccy Whittingham (Wm Barnes, Sturminster Newton 5G). In the age-class team competitions, Clayesmore's Year 11 Girls came 3rd. In the whole school team competition, South Wilts were 12th in the large schools class, whilst the team from Clayesmore won the Small Secondary School trophy for the 3rd year in succession and for an incredible 11th time since they first won it in 1994. The full results and lots more pictures are on the British school OA website.

In the ISSF selection races on Saturday, Lucy Butt won the W14 race, whilst in the M14 race, Jack Benham won and Sam Giles was 4th.

RULES

The Dorset Schools Orienteering League is run by Wimborne Orienteers in close co-operation with all the other local orienteering clubs (WSX, SARUM, SOC). It is open to anyone attending schools in Dorset, S Wilts, & W. Hants ( & indeed schools from the Isle of Wight & the Channel Islands may occasionally attend.)

There are usually about 8 league events during the season (some years we manage nine) and we count the best 5 performances for each runner & each school. Points are awarded on a time basis: the winner in each school year group gets 100 points, subsequent runners get points according to the formula 

points = 100 x winners time/your time

Pairs share the points. If you run down a course, you get half points. Younger runners on White shadowed by parents also get half points.

Courses

White - Year 6 and below Girls & Boys

Yellow - Year 7 & 8 Girls & Boys  

Orange - Year 9 & 10 Boys & Girls

Light Green - Year 11 Boys, Year 11 Girls

Green - Year 12+ Boys & Girls. If there is no Green course (perhaps because the area is too small or simple to support it), these year groups also run Light Green

Blue - Where these are available, older runners may also run this course and qualify for schools points

If you run up a course, your scores are calculated from the performance of the course winners. If you are the leading runner on the course, points are calculated from your time ( eg at Shillingstone 2007,Peter Taylor (Swan 8B) was the first boy on Orange, rather than the Yellow course he could have run, so he got the 100 points and any Year 9 & 10 Boys scores were calculated from his time. Emma Spring  (S Wilts  11G) ran down on Orange so got half points because her age group should be scored  on the Light Green course.

School teams acquire points by taking the best 4 performances per League event.

We try to notify all interested schools and  mail them at regular intervals, but details don't always get through to the right people. If you want to enter yourself or your school in the league, please e-mail the league administrator, Dick Keighley

Electronic  punching

With the help of a grant from Sport England, WIM  purchased a set of SI equipment for electronic punching together with notebook computers etc. At the moment we have about 50 punching stations which means that we can use the equipment for small events and borrow extra  boxes for major events like Regional & Galoppen events. WSX have bought a similar set with their grant which means that working together we can cater for big events as well.  SARUM events use their new EMIT kit. SOC have their own EMIT equipment.

(WIM also also three SI Schools kits which are available for schools to use.  Orienteering is not only on the National Curriculum for PE but the SI equipment allows cross-curricular links to IT etc.)

Where possible, we  use electronic punching at most schools league events. We can't use it for all events - some areas like Bryanston are very public and with the control stations costing 60 each we can't afford to lose any, so areas where we have had control vandalism in the past may still use control cards and pin punching.

E-cards for punching cost 22 or so to buy. WIM have got 200 cards for hire and we  allow schools to use them for free at league events and we are considering fitting extra wrist straps on them to make them difficult to mislay in the forest. However schools should be aware that any lost cards must be paid for. At events using EMIT there is usually a small hire charge for the e-card
