Orienteering & Drill Teams


Meets are held on two Saturdays per month. The Orienteering Team Carpools to each race, leaving at about 6:30 a.m. from the High School. Directions to the race sites are provided to drivers. Students can sign up to have their parents drive in the PDL in class. Parents have the option to drive their child and not carpool with others. Grade sheets are due on the Tuesday before the race to check eligibility and to have a specific count of participants. Races begin at the race sights at 10:00 am and start times begin as late as 11:30 am. Each runner will start at a different time to prevent participants from following each other. After the race, the students can stop for lunch on the way home.
