Irish eyes smile on Reivers pair

Roxburgh Reivers Kirstin Maxwell and Lindsey Knox headed to Lisburn in Northern Ireland for a weekend of orienteering events.

Maxwell had an excellent start on Friday, taking second place in a world-ranking sprint race round the city and finishing only four seconds behind the winner. On Saturday, Knox finished in second place in the Irish Long Distance Championships on a very wet and windy Slieve Croob mountain.

After a day off, the girls each won their classes in a UK Urban League race, gaining enough points to head their tables overall.
