Lightning struck and thunder roared on Thursday for the Iola Mustangs cross country meet in Fort Scott.

Although the elements may have provided an avenue for distraction, it didn’t stop the varsity boys and girls from taking the crown. 

The Fort Scott meet started with Iola’s middle schoolers taking the course. Alyssa Williams and Madeline Wanker starred in the seventh-grade girl’s race. Williams came in 11th with a time of 20:36 and Wanker finished at 23:21 for 13th. The seventh-grade boys saw Cole Moyer take first with a time of 13:44 and Brigg Shannon finished fourth running 15:03. Also competing for the boys were Ethan Riebel, Alejandro Escalante, Roper Curry and Robert Warren.
