Australian University Games

Toby Wilson has done really well in the Australian University Orienteering Championships.  Toby was placed 3rd today at the event held concurrently with the Australian Long Distance Championships.  Nearly all the elites go to university at some stage, so the competition is often very hot.  Well done Toby!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oceania Sprint Championships

Today was bright and sunny at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga for the Sprint event of the Oceania Championships.  Four of the 33 Garingalites participating in the Champs came back beaming!  Barbara Hill (left) took out 1st place in W50, Carol Jacobson (centre) was 1st in W70 and Wendy McConaghy (right) was 1st in the W Open B class.  In the men's classes, Ron Junghans (right) was 3rd in M75.  Tomorrow is up near Cootamundra and sunny is again the forecast!

 

Australian Long Dist Champs

Another magic day for the Aus Long Champs held just south of Cootamundra on a map called 'Split Rock'.  Now, the rocks here are something to behold.  Ordinary boulders do not cut the mustard when you are faced by the one in the photo! 

Again Garingal had some outstanding results.  Barbara Hill is Australian Champion in W50A. Fantastic!  Nikolett Halmai came 2nd in W35A, Aniko Fozo-Kertesz was 2nd in W21A and Wendy McConaghy was 2nd in W Open B.  Commendable also was Ron Junghans' 4th placing in M75A because the field was huge, with a lot of depth (around the top we mean).

 

 

 

 

MetroLeague winners

Garingal was the winner of Division 2 in the MetroLeague Finals near Wallacia yesterday.  From left to right, John Brayan, Mike Ridley-Smith, Robert Herkes, Jamie Kennedy and lastly Tom Kennedy.  This was a just finish for Jamie, because as Club Captain he has capably created 9 teams of 5 Garingalites for every one of the 6-event series (despite the fact that some of us only register the day before, or even, just turn up on the day).  As MetroLeague Chief Organiser, Ian Jessup was probably praying for perfect weather - and he got it!  A stunning way to cap off a fun series of events that give a social flavour to orienteering.

A big Thank You to Jamie for being our Club Captain, and another big Thank You to Ian Jessup for organising this event series on behalf of ONSW.
