Sport Report, 1 May 2019
By Steve Doyle, Teacher
As a prelude to the Orienteering season at Radford, four runners travelled to WA compete in a series of events in the holiday period. The terrain varied from education campuses to forested spur-gully and finally to big-rock granite, requiring the runners to show a spread of skills and navigation techniques most appropriate to the given conditions.
Results from the Australian 3 Days Championship over Easter:
Aoife Rothery (Yr 7) W12 sprint-1, long-2, middle-1, Overall result 1st
Justine Hobson (Yr 9) W16 sprint-2, long-1, Overall result 1st
Patrick Shelton-Agar (Yr 9) M16 Overall 12th
David Stocks (Yr 10) M16 long-1, middle-1 (no overall due to dsq on sprint)
All backed up to run the following weekend, with David successful in winning both the National Sprint & Middle Distance Championships in M16, Aoife returning first in the W12 Sprint and Justine finishing 2nd in the W16 Middle.
Radford 2018 Year 12s Noah Poland and Ryan Stocks both competed in M20E, with Noah subsequently selected to represent Australia in the Junior World Championships in Denmark in July. Noah is following in the footsteps of older brother, Collegian Oliver, in competing at this level.
Radford squad practice begins on site at the school on Wednesday afternoon May 1st, followed by the first event of the Junior League season on Saturday morning May 4.
