Thanks to all for attending. The weather was perfect, as it always is. The ground was a little slippery and some people came out of the woods looking like they had a great time playing in the mud.

Results in the links below are shown by division for the Jr. Champs and by course for the Shamrock Hunt in three formats for each: a standard result list, split times, and chip data.

In the Middle School/Jr. High Individual Division, the Stebbins High School's Sandra Calzada just edged out Granger Home School's Finley Miller.

In the Rookie Individual Division Union County Middle School's triumphant trio Skyler Hertel, Noah Pavey, and Jordan Hertel swept the top three spots, capturing the large traveling trophy.

In the JV Individual Division Union County High School's team of Jamie Reeder, Noah Migoski, & Alex Yancey, won the division and captured the large traveling trophy.

In the Varsity Division, Mason High School's Michael Darby took the fastest spot.

In the Middle School/Jr. High Cooperative Division, Miami Valley Young Marines's cohesive groups of John Sollinger & Jaelen Bobo; Greg Ward & Zach McIntire; and Daniel Dean,Alex Jebavy, & Karl Slader captured the division.

The Splits report shows time spent traveling between each control. For each competitor, the first row shows cummulative time, and the second row shows each leg's split time. Leading times are in blue.

The Chip Data report is the raw data from the computer chip inside the SI cards (finger sticks). It shows the start time of day, finish time of day, elapsed time (bold), and download time of day (Read at). It also shows each control number punched and the time of day it was visited. This shows where people were and when, as they traveled around their course.

Be sure to check out the Trophy Standings report. See if your name is listed.

Though additional orienteering is always encouraged, in the interest of competitive fairness, only the first course an individual or group runs is included in the championship competition. Once an orienteer is out on a course they return with advantageous knowledge of the competition area, shared controls, etc. Results for subsequent courses are listed with the Shamrock Hunt results.
