Results are shown by division for the Jr. Champs and by course for the Shamrock Hunt in both standard results and split times.

In the Rookie Individual Division, Union County High School's Camren Cooper earned the medal for the fastest time.  Great job!

In the JV Individual Division Hamilton High School's team led by Alexander Lopez swept all the spots to take the division and win the large traveling trophy.

In the Varsity Division Hamilton High School arrived with their highly trained team, and led by Matthew Combs they found victory and the top Varsity traveling trophy!

In the cooperative divisions Northmont and Beavercreek almost had successful team performances, but only two of their team members from each school finished their courses.  By the rules, a minimum of three must finish, within 3 hours, in order to get a team score.

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.  Look at the Varsity Division splits for Matthew Combs and Jacob Spangenberg.  Though Jacob had eight of the fastest legs compared to Matthew's seven, overall Matthew had the lowest time!

Be sure to check out the Trophy Standings report.

In the Shamrock Hunt, my apologies to Steve Barnhart.  I had control collectors get one of his controls early.  I adjusted his time for how long he said it slowed him down.  Jasper Ralinovsky did a great job there, finishing the red course in less time than anyone on red or green, and also all but one on the orange course!
