MVOC Junior Orienteering Championships - Practice Event
November 10, 2006 - Possum Creek MetroPark
Weather: 60's & sunny.
Attendance: 121 in 73 groups
Thanks for meet assistance: Sharon Bond, Bob Thobaben, Tom McClory, Steve Barnhart, and Larry Berna.
The courses were left in place after the meet for the following day's Turkey Hunt. Competitors can compare their results with others who ran the same course the next day.
The top 1/3 of finishers on a course (not counting OT's) should consider moving to the next higher course. Finishers with an OT or DNF should move to an easier course and master it (top 1/3) before moving higher. Competitors on the green course should be confident enough in their navigation to run the entire course.
For trophy standings, cooperative teams on the Varsity green course are not considered. At this expert level, only teams made up of individuals are considered. Be sure to check the Miami Valley Junior Orienteering Championship Rules when assembling teams.
For the '06-'07 school year, Hamilton may have its hands full retaining all three large travelling trophies in the Spring championships, as the Wayne Warriors came out on top in the J.V. Division. The coop divisions aren't all wrapped up by Big Blue either as Colonel White fielded a strong team to take the Rookie Cooperative Division. That said, Hamilton has wrapped up a majority of the divisions capturing three out of five!
A hard battle was waged in the Rookie Division with many close times. At the top was Hamilton's Christian Adkins. Outstanding performances were also turned in by Wayne's Jonathan Clark, bettering the J.V. Division by over five minutes, and Brandon Wilson, a full 22 minutes ahead of the nearest Varsity challenger. Fantastic! Now if Brandon can coach his teammates to similar performances, they can capture the Varsity Division, which at this time is controlled by Hamilton.
Last year's Varsity Champion by a large margin, Big Blues's Kenny Fugate, was on hand coaching the Hamilton team and also got a chance to post a great time on the Varsity course.
And here are the Trophy Standings.
