EUREKA Last week, Iola cross country was scheduled to compete at Central Heights, but plans went by the wayside due to thunderstorms. Instead of making up the meet on Monday, head coach Marv Smith organized his runners to compete in Eureka on Tuesday.
The only runners not competing were Fillie and Mustang varsity runners. Instead, Smith put his junior varsity runners in the varsity races in order to discover his varsity alternatives moving forward.
The middle school section has tough competition with schools as big as Wichita.
