Fun in the rain
Kingsland cross-country runners didn’t let a little, rather a lot, of rain ruin their fun at the first meet of the season, the Stewartville Invitational, Thursday afternoon. The steady rain Thursday created a river at the finish chute, which the girls slid into after the conclusion of the race. They were already soaked by that time as rain, without any danger of lightning that could have ended the activity, fell throughout the races.
