The North American and Canadian Orienteering Championships were held August 17-24th in Whitehorse, YT. The six races over seven days had OANS representation from twelve athletes. Our Orienteers faired very well at the event that saw approx 550 total participants. We had 9 athletes who had top 3 finishes, for total of 26 NS top 3 finishes! This included 3 athletes who brought home gold(s); Evie Hall won 6 gold medals (all her events), Milo Hall won 3 gold medals and Emily Secord won 2 gold medals. NS also represented in the NA Club Relay with two full relay teams. The event was very well organized and provided some incredible terrain to challenge our orienteers.
