Regional Cross Country Meet
Today was the Northwest Arctic Borough School District's Regional Cross Country meet for elementary and middle schools. There were teams representing Kotzebue, Ambler, Kobuk, Shungnak, Kiana, Noorvik, and I think Noatak. I'm not sure if there were any kids from Deering, Kivalina, or Selawik.
The girls took off first. For the elementary kids the race started at the first bridge and went to the beginning of the hill where the kids turned around and headed back for the finish. It was a one mile course.
Next it was the boy's turn to race the same course.
Can you see Uyaana? He's wearing a green cammo John Deer sweatshirt that is one size too small (note to self, get rid of that sweatshirt). Just before the races started I noticed that all his other team mates had team shirts. I asked him where his was and he just said "oh I forgot". *Sigh*
Here he is plugging away.
The final stretch.
And the finish line.
