Congratulations Captains, Patriots and Panthers for NNOC 2023!


At the 2023 Navy National Orienteering Championship (NNOC), held 18-19 March at Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge, Georgia, all three QOC partner units competing had great results in a tough field of 33 teams.

The Captains of Loudoun County H.S. finished 2nd overall in the team competition.

The Patriots of Governor Thomas Johnson H.S. placed 4th.

And the Panthers of Patuxent H.S. came in 10th.

All three units finished in the top 10 in the nation! Great job all around!
