Students Shine in Queensland Schools Orienteering Championships
In July, Mikaela Gray (Year 12) and Oscar Hetteling (Year 7) participated in the Queensland Schools Orienteering Championships.
Over 100 students from all around Queensland took part in three events: a Sprint Distance event at Albany Creek State High School, a one-person Hageby relay at Samford and a bush event at Kurwongbah.
Mikaela achieved First place in the Sprint, Hageby Relay and Long-Distance events while Oscar achieved Second place in the Long Distance, in their respective age-groups. Well done Mikaela and Oscar!
Results from these events were used to select the Queensland Schools Honour Team of 20 students. This team will represent Queensland at the Australian Schools Orienteering Championships scheduled to be held in Tasmania in September.
Orienteering Queensland congratulates Mikaela on her selection in this honour team in the Senior Girls category.
