Australian Championships Carnival Schools Team Report by Eleanor
The 2018 Australian Orienteering Championships Carnival, hosted by South Australia, proved to be a fun and worthwhile experience for the Tasmanian Schools Team. While the Team as a whole did not place in the tight Schools Competition, coming 7th, every member showed great potential and skill with some fantastic runs.
Over the Schools Championships the Team only had one individual placegetter - Jed who came 3rd Senior Boy in the Sprint - but the Team picked up a few other medals. The Senior Girls were 3rd in the Relay and both the Sprint Teams Competition and Long Teams Competition. The Senior Boys grabbed 3rd in the Long Teams Competition.
