U.S. 2011 Relay and Night Orienteering Champions

While much of the northeast was dealing with the effects of an early-season snowstorm the weekend of October 28-30, 2011, the orienteering conditions in St. Louis were just about perfect for the Night-O Champs held Friday evening in Cuivre River State Park in Troy, Missouri, and the Relay Champs Sunday in Creve Couer, Missouri, all organized by the St. Louis Orienteering Club.

Winners of the Night Champs were Greg Walker, Truckee, Calilfornia, and Alison Crocker, Amherst, Massachusetts. Both compete for the Cambridge Sports Union (CSU).

For the Relay, the top results were:

4-point teams: CSU 1, Delaware Valley OA, CSU 2
8-points teams: Chicago Area OC, Orienteer Kansas, St. Louis OC
12-point teams: Quantico OC, Rocky Mountain OC, Possum Trot OC
