SA Orienteers at the Australian 3 Days near Orange

on .

The Easter Carnival was centred on Orange, NSW, this year after a twelve month deferral due to Covid 19.

The Sprint was held at Charles Sturt University, with excellent results from Olivia Sprod second, Abigail George third, and notable performances from Angus Haines, Joanna George, Jenny Casanova, Toby Cazzolato, Max Grivell and Ethan Penck.

Then it was into the rocks and bush of the Three Days, and what an orienteering test it was. Day One on Noah's Ark was a great introduction to what was to follow on the Gumble Pinnacles the next two days. Considering the number of " did not finish " and long course times, this map arguably certainly lived up to be one of the most challenging in Australia. To finish at all could be considered by some a success, (myself included), and I noticed many miserable participants wandering aimlessly around in a sea of large boulders. Many courses did not achieve the expected winning times, even when experienced orienteers had relatively mistake free runs, and many competotors chose to abandon their courses on Day 2 ( much greater number than normal for this early season event).

Nevertheless there were great performances from South Australians, being: Emily Sorensen first and Joanna George fourth in Women 20 Elite, Toby Cazzolato first in Men 18 Elite, Olivia Sprod second in Women 21 Elite, Lachlan Hallett first in the Sledge, Jenny Casanova third in W45A, and very good efforts by Abigail George, Teri McCoomb, Leila Henderson, Susanne Casanova, Ethan Penck, Steve Cooper, Dante Afnan, Angus Haines, Max Grivell, Andrew McCoomb, Robert Kriesl and Robert Smith.

All resutls are available in Eventor and you can view courss in the LiveLox link (although you need to be a subscriber to run full replays of those who have uplaoded their routes).
