The Riverside Runners Juniors Awards Presentation Day for 2012 took place Sat 16 Feb 2013 where sixteen awards were made.
Before the formal awards the Juniors took part in a simplified Odds and Evens Orienteering Session in priory Park in teams of three. Surprisingly, everyone seemed to grasp the concept fairly quickly (except some of the adults) with the Juniors taking part in teams of three. Then the Junior Summer Handicap winners for 2012 were confirmed as : First - Callum Nicholson Second - Grace Pritchard Third - Chris Ward
2012 Award Winners Junior of the Year - Emma Evans Hurden Trophy - Owen Sainsbury Boy Champion - Matt Sellick Girl Champion - Catherine Hemingway 13+ Girl - Hayley Bartlett 13+ Boy - Andrew Shelton U13 Girl- Maisie Pritchard U13 Boy - William Forster U11 Girl - Abbey Foster U11 Boy - Evan Hoskings Girl of the Year - Abby Foster Boy of the Year - Matt Sellick Most Promising Girl - Abbey Foster Most Promising Boy - Kieran Brewer Most Improved Girl - Kirsty Middleton Most Improved Boy - Evan Hosking
All the coaches (Helen, Mark, Tony, Phil, KP & Maurice) congratulate all the Juniors who have taken such an active part in 2012 and specially the award winners. Many thanks too for the hard work by Helen in arranging the presentation session and the bowling which was held beforehand.
A full list of the winners for 2012 and the previous winners of the awards (some of which go back to 1991) is now uploaded in the Document Library under "Awards". Maurice
