Alex Wetherill, our Junior Team Captain, has been selected to run for England in the Interland International orienteering competition to be held in Ardennes in France, in March 2019.
Many thanks and congratulations to the WAOC Junior Team (and their parents) who travelled to Tankersley Wood in Barnsley at the weekend to take part in the first Daybreak Relay race in the 2018 Peter Palmer Competition for Junior Orienteers.
WAOC had four winners in the Essex and Suffolk Schools Orienteering League (ESSOL) for this academic year. Alex Darwin won the Year 3/4 Boys league, Hebe Darwin came 2nd in the Year 5/6 Girls, Jemima Borrill came 2nd in the Year 7/8 Girls and Daniel Hague came 2nd in the Year 9/10 Boys.
Huge congratulations and many thanks to all the Juniors who came to Danbury Park to run for WAOC in the Yvette Baker heat on Sunday 13th May.
Every member of the team completed their course so we had the maximum 9 scores possible from our team of 9. All the juniors put in impressive performances, there were some good solid runs from the more experienced juniors but also some excellent runs on the yellow course by the younger members of the team.
Colour coded badges are intended to give Orienteers of all ages a target to aim for. This article explains more about the scheme and how to earn a badge.
