Congratulations to Amelia, Sienna and Lucy on their 2nd place overall

During the last week of the April school holidays, our DIO Orienteering team competed at the North Island Orienteering Championships, held in Palmerston North. Code Captain Lucy Russ (12RO) finished 7th in the Sprint event and 8th in the Long event. 

Year 7 Aless Nicholson finished 6th in the Sprint, despite losing one shoe around the course. 

Intermediate age group runners, Amelia McIntosh (10MP) and Sienna Payne (10MP) raced up in the senior relay team with Lucy Russ. After running an extraordinary race, they finished in 2nd place overall. 

Well done to all the girls on a very successful event!
