Hanny, Lizzie and third-placed Shannon Jones all had outstanding runs on their 2.3km Sprint course, with Hanny and Lizzie both showing continued form improvement as they prepare for WOC.

Mt Annan

The Metroleague season started with a bang for The Feet with wins in all 3 Divisions in the searing heat of Mt Annan. Standout performances include Alastair George's 28 mins for the Div 3 course and Daniele Guardini & Greg Barbour taking home the 10 points in Div 2 and Div 1. Looks like selection decisions will be tough for the next round.

Beware the Mindfields

The NSW middle distance champs visited an area rarely orienteered on by non-Novacastrians, the minefields of Bluegum Regional Park and adjacent mining rehabillitation area.

The addition of new symbols like "subsidence crack" along with Denis Lyons usual detailed mapping provided a mental challenge.
