The Waller AFJROTC Orienteering Team was named the 2015-2016 State Champion at their final orienteering meet of the season. Orienteering is a running sport in which competitors use a detailed map and compass to navigate unfamiliar terrain. It is also referred to as a “thinking sport,” as competitors are charged with searching for terrain features identified on a map and must complete their quest in three hours or less. The courses are generally six or seven miles, and are filled with hills, valleys, streams and other obstacles.
