Thanks to Orienteering Cincinnati and Mike Minium and crew for a great weekend of challenging orienteering. The Review Panel this year used a new system to select the team members, and assigned races based both on the athletes' preferences and their performance at the events in Kentucky.

The solid performances of recent Juniors are reflected in Alison Campbell, Tori Borish, Greg Ahlswede, and Ethan Childs being named to the WOC team, and Will Enger earning an alternate spot. We look forward to following these athletes at world competitions for many years to come.
