This Saturday’s event at Stromlo West is the final round of the 2018 Junior League, as well as the ACT Secondary School Orienteering Championships.
The scores have been updated and can be found at the link below.
A minimum of 6 events are necessary to qualify for the final scoring and results are the best 10 scores from the total 14 events.
While the placegetters have been settled in some divisions, there are still some close challenges in several divisions.
Oliver Goltzinger has raced up the leaderboard in the M10 division with a great score at Cooleman ridge, closing in on leader Charlie Field. Neither have competed in 10 events so their full scores will count in the final round.
Connor Lineen looks to have wrapped up the M12 division but there is a five way tussle for the final places with Sandy Wilkinson, Samual Michaelis, Charlie Seddon and Makhaya Hogg within striking distance.
Patrick Sheloton Agar and Will Madl continue to battle it out in the M14 class with 6 points separating the top two spots.
David Stocks and Toby Lang have locked up the top two spots in M16 while Ryan Stocks, Patrick and Tristan Miller have the podium covered for M18.
In W10, Zoe McCrae and Astrid Evans remain close and will be looking to throw out their lower scores on Saturday, having complete 11 events each. In W12, Ingrid Shelton Agar has an insurmountable lead and Celeste Hodgen, Alicia Maniti and Mia Witheford challenging for the places.
Lauren Charles has had her lead narrowed in the W14 after Justin Hobson had a strong result last weekend with either potentially taking out the competition this weekend. The W16 places are finalised with Ella Cuthbert comfortably leading Ellen Johnson and Tamara Needham. Miho Yamazaki will take out W18 as the only competitor to complete the necessary 6 events.
