Northern Ireland Orienteering Championships

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Paul Pruzina who secured victory at the ‘Northern Ireland Orienteering Championships’ at Binevenagh on Saturday 6th October.

Paul, competing in the ‘M16’ category, completed the demanding course in an impressive 63 minutes and 51 seconds to finish nearly two minutes ahead of his nearest rival.  

Success in the competition comes after a string of impressive performances by Paul in recent times, which have included a 10th place finish at the UK-wide ‘Junior Inter- Regional Championships’ held in the Lake District, 9th at the ‘Junior Home International’ in Fermanagh, featuring the top Orienteers from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales, and 1st at the prestigious ‘Jan Kellstrom Festival of Orienteering’ in Belfast.

Paul, who competes for ‘Lagan Valley Orienteers’ (LVO), deserves huge credit for his recent achievements and all at Grosvenor wish him the best of luck in his future Orienteering endeavours.
