Woolford boys selected for Orienteering NSW’s All Schools teams


ORIENTEERING NSW has announced the NSW All Schools team to compete at the 2021 Australian schools orienteering championships in Tasmania in the September holidays.

The family nature of orienteering is emphasised with three lots of siblings among the 20-strong team, chosen following the State League weekend in Newcastle in June.

From Coffs Harbour High School, Oscar Woolford, Sam Woolford and Jamie Woolford were selected in the Senior Boys side while Alex Woolford was selected for the Junior Boys.

The students will travel with the team to Tasmania and run in the three national schools events from September 28-30 (Sprint, Individual and Relay), while also competing in the other major events on both weekends of the Australian championships carnival around St Helens.

Covid update: The championships are going ahead but the team’s attendance depends on Tasmania allowing NSW residents into the state.

Should NSW not be allowed to participate, the team would be an Honour Team which is still great kudos to the students.
