After achieving success at the NH Zone Day, five of our Orienteering teams took to Reeves Farm, Patumahoe for the Auckland InterZone Day. The challenging 2.2km courses had our athletes running over farmland, jumping streams and hurdling fences in order to find all the punches in the quickest time possible. All our 5 teams did exceptionally well, especially considering the high calibre of competition, gaining excellent results:
Y7 Boys A Team – 5th place overall (Kyan Sellars, Luke Drake, Benjamin Bibbie, Jack Loft, Isaac Kirkpatrick and Sam van der Ent)
Y7 Boys B Team – 20th place overall (Tai Rhodes, Harry Bennett, Cameron Schmidt, Ilia Trefilov and Ryan Glynn)
Y8 Boys A Team – 3rd place overall (Taiga Kato, Nick Gaze, Luke Hart, Liam Goldblatt, Kyle Dymock-Smith and Chris Hewitt)
Y7 Girls Team – 2nd place overall (Kate Borton, Olivia Beechey, Georgia Knight, Brenna Johnson, Lauren Anderson and Ella Harvey)
Y8 Girls Team – 4th place overall (Victoria Lane, Kenzie McKay, India Fisher, Ashleigh Martin, Angela Han and Scarlett Wears)
Special mention to Taiga Kato who was the fastest athlete on the course overall, with a sensational time of 14 minutes 57 seconds.
Well done to all those who competed!
