Some say, ?If you?re not first, you?re last.?
That quote could define Iola High?s Jack Adams. This season, the Mustangs? number-one cross country runner has finished first individually in three of five meets. Most recently, Adams placed 12th and medaled at the Rim Rock meet on Saturday in Lawrence.
In seventh grade Adams had to decide whether to play football or run cross country under head coach Marv Smith. Safe to say, he made the right decision. Adams has been the Mustangs? number-one runner since he was a freshman.
