Beechwood Park School won the round to extend their lead in both competitions but St Albans High School pushed them hard. 9th St Alban’s Beavers, Haberdasher’s Aske’s School and Hadrian academy were third, fourth and fifth, all with a full complement of scoring runners.

Round 2 results…

The next round is at Cassiobury Park in Watford on the 3rd December. Hopefully the winter sun will shine.

CompassSport Cup Final

HH placed 8th in the CompassSport Cup Final at Tankersley Wood near Sheffield on Sunday 16th October 2016. The event was won by Forth Valley Orienteers ahead of hosts South Yorkshire Orienteers. HH were narrowly edged by local rivals Southdown Orienteers.

in terms of points scored, there were particularly strong performances by Kevin Harding, Alan Rosen, Simon Errington, Janet Rosen, Sam Fielding, Alex Fielding and Hannah Freeman. But thank you to all of the 39 Club members who made the trek north on a very wet Sunday morning. Unfortunately, we could not stop the competition at 12.15pm at which point, after some good early runs, HH were leading!
