    The individual 14-18 years class again saw close results with Ellie Cundy finally claiming the female title ahead of Paige Brown and Stacey McPherson in third place.

    In the mains Andrew McLachlan who is unbeaten this year claimed the title with George Cox second.

    The under-14 titles went to Rebecca Kinghorn from the Reviers group and Atoll Pettinger from the Kinross group.
