Area Five Orienteering Championship Results
Our team placed 4th overall, with the Varsity placing 4th of 19 teams, JV 6th and 8th of 30, and Intermediate team 11th and 12th of 30, so all did admirably.
Cadet Wilfredo Bautista earned the individual gold medal on JV, and Cadets Zack Tershak, Marshall Wilkins, and Travis Langtry finished 11th, 12th, and 20th on varsity, respectively, of 85 competitors, so we are very excited about our prospects for Nationals in February.
Congratulations go out to Coach Clay Wilkins and all members of the team. Herndon was one of only two schools (out of the 22 Area FIVE schools in attendance) to have five teams successfully complete their course.
The players on HHS' Certamen (ker-TAH-men) team competed against over twenty schools this weekend at Flint Hill School.

The Level 1 team placed 7th out of 26 teams; the Level 2 team placed 4th out of 20 teams; and the Level 3 team placed 1st out of 15 teams. When you see them, please congratulate: Dora Drezga, Christina Ngo, Paul Bailey, Haley Cosmo, Sarah Mister, Samridhi Shrestha, Angie Ngo, Mary Ogborn, Xander Schaaf, Natalie Verges, Grace Bailey, Charlie Shen, Shruti Srivastava, Shelly Yanosky and Christian Sheppard. Congratulations to all of the players!
