Orienteering results
Due to the Covid related postponement of the North Island Schools’ Orienteering from April, our orienteers had a week-long orienteering carnival in the second week of the July School holidays.

They started with a very complex urban course at Epsom Campus, with multi-level control placement creating confusion for some. This was followed by two days in Woodhill Forest, again providing technically challenging maps that kept everyone thinking hard. Everyone found their way home again, although it took a couple of hours for some! One day of rest on Wednesday, saw the team back in a slightly less complex, but more physically demanding urban course at James Cook High School and the neighbouring Mountford Park. Like the urban course, the two following days on farmland at Awhitu Peninsula were not for the fainthearted. Steep hills and many fences made this a far more athletic experience than the forest events earlier in the week. The addition of South Auckland schools and some North Island Schools who chose not to travel for both events, made the competition much fiercer. Despite not gaining the same podium exposure, Dio girls were consistently in the top 10, and frequently 4th or 5th place, resulting in the Top Small School award (fewer than five secondary age competitors) at both events.
