2011 Team to Junior World Orienteering Championships named

On behalf of Orienteering USA, the JWOC Selection Committee and the Junior Team Executive Steering Committee, I am proud to announce the team that will represent the USA at the 2011 Junior World Orienteering Championships:

  • Alison Campbell, DVOA
  • Meg Parson, NEOC
  • Andrew Childs, GMOC
  • Carl Underwood, NEOC
  • Ethan Childs, GMOC
  • Giacomo Barbone, CSU
  • Nathaniel Lyons, ROC
  • Jaxon Rickel, TSN

This will be the first JWOC (as competitors) for Meg, Ethan, Giacomo and Jaxon.

In the event that any male Team members become unable to attend, alternate Team members would be:

  1. Zachary Schroeder, USMAOC
  2. Alexander Kiperman, LAOC

There are no female alternates.

Thank you to the parents, coaches and other adults, who supported, and will continue to support, these young people in their quest for orienteering excellence.  They can certainly count on the support of everybody back home, in July, when they will take on the best junior orienteers in the world in Rumia-Wejherowo, Poland.
