Banchory pupils played a big part in the final scores with an individual win from Jake Chapman in M16, second for Eilidh Campbell in W14, third for Ali Chapman in M14 & 8th for Abi Mason running up a level in W18. Former pupils Sasha Chepelin won M18 and Jenny Ricketts was third in W18.  An amazing achievement, well done to all involved.
