HH Saturday Series
Our next Saturday series event will be held in Ashridge on March 7th.
This is one of our best areas and is likely to attract a very good level of attendance. It’s one not to miss!
Event details are now available here….
Please help make the event run more smoothly by reserving your map (and hire dibber too should you need one).
Well done to our new Southern Orienteering Champions Sian Mitchell (W35) and Janet Rosen (W60). Also congratulations go to Tegan Frampton (2nd W10A), Helen Marsden (2nd W35L), Gillian Hanson (1st W45S), Alison Harding (2nd W55L), Alex Fielding (3rd M12A), Ian Marsden (3rd M35L), and Kevin Harding (3rd M55L).
It is worth noting that Janet also won the Midland Champs course this weekend (but of course she is not eligible for this cup as well!)
The well attended 4th round of the Youth League saw Beechwood Park School winning in both the League and Maureen Webster Memorial Trophy competitions. Their lead in the league is now unassailable, and so they are are our new winners, ending a 5 year winning streak by the St Albans High School.
In the Maureen Webster Memorial Trophy, St Albans High School have a slender 9 point lead to take into the last round.
The last round is at Ashridge on the 7th March.
Final (hopefully) results for the 2014 Saturday League are posted here.
- Yellow – Jonathan Bint
- Orange – Mathew Hubbard
- Light Green – David Dixon
- Light Green Plus – Ian Byford
The results have been updated to apply the rule allowing juniors to carry forwards scores from lower courses when they move to a longer course, with such retained scores being indicated with an asterisk. In doing this I’ve only allowed one transition, a junior cannot pick and chose their course freely over the season and once they’ve run up there’s no going back. It’s gratifying to see quite how many juniors do develop during the year and hence benefit from this rule.
Probably the biggest challenge in calculating this league is the inconsistency in the names many of your appear under in the results. Maybe another argument for using the map reservation system which places the typing of your name entirely under your control! If you still appear under more than one entry please let me know.
Congratulations to all 339 league participants!
