Karen to captain Scots in Wales

Roxburgh Reiver Karen Maxwell will captain Scotland in the Junior Home International orienteering competition this weekend.

This year’s competition takes place in the Brecon Beacons in South Wales and consists of an individual event on Saturday, followed by relays on Sunday.

Former Jedburgh Grammar School pupil Karen first took part in this competition as an 11 year old in 2007 and has represented Scotland at junior level every year since.

Scotland hope to go one better than last year when they finished runners-up to England.
