Southern Arrows

Both senior teams finished 4th, with Simon Uppill the best individual winning the Senior Mens.  Bridget Anderson was 6th in Senior Womens.  In  juniors we are often not able to fill full teams at interstate events.  Hopefully with 4 NOL races in SA in 2015 as part of the Australian Three Day events, the juniors will improve on this year’s results.

For the full year standings see this link - http://www.orienteering.asn.au/get-involved/national-league/point-score/ 

OY awards were presented by Regina Rueter who calculated the overall results – for the winners see our results page - http://sa.orienteering.asn.au/results/2014Results/

The Sue Millard Trophy for the most improved juniors were awarded to Angus Haines and Emily Sorenson, mainly due to very consistent performances at the Australian Championships carnival  in WA in October.
