National Orienteering League Round 1

Ian ProsserUncategorized

There was some exciting racing at Hill End last weekend for the first round of NOL 2019 with a relay and a long distance race.

Some things stayed the same and others were new. Victorian and Canberra Cockatoos continued from last year to lead Senior Women and Men respectively and the Cockatoos also lead Junior Women. What was new was the Cockatoos Junior Women almost beating all senior teams in the relay and NSW Stingers leading Junior men with a line up that could keep that lead all season.

In the individual results there were wins for Krystal Neumann (Queensland Cyclones) and Matt Doyle (Cockatoos) in the seniors and first time wins for Patrick Miller of the Cockatoos and Mikayla Cooper of Tasmanian Foresters in the juniors.
