Captain: Katherine Bett

About: I am a historian from St Mary's College and I have been orienteering since before I can remember! I was British Champion many years ago but I now focus more on the coaching side of the sport, having coached a national junior squad for a couple of summers. I really want to share my love of orienteering, a sport which offers a unique mental and physical challenge and can take you to some amazing places!

Social Sec: Fran Brown

About: Hey I'm Fran (st Mary's), I came to orienteering through a running background aged 11. My biggest achievement is beating Julie (treasurer aka beast) in a relay or 2nd at the British Middles 2015. My favourite discipline is the sprint because it gives me less chance of getting lost. I also like banter starts at relays (first to the start kite).
