PARSONS — Marvin Smith has been called many things as a coach and teacher. Did you know he had quilting skills as well?
“Team medals were given to the top three teams and we dang near got in with our patched together varsity,” Smith said of the Iola High Mustang cross country team.
Smith said Iola’s boys are hampered by injuries and other activities taking runners away. In Thursday’s Parsons High Invitational at Big Hill Reservoir, the Mustang head coach had to piece together a varsity “quilt” to compete.
