EUDORA — The cold and wind did not dampen the spirit or the performances of the Ottawa Middle School cross-country runners Thursday at Eudora in the season finale.
Ottawa had four medalists.
Ottawa coaches Fonda Rose and Mike Kyriakos liked how the runners competed.
“We were very proud of the way they represented their school and themselves,” the two coaches said.
“Four of our runners medaled, while the other 13 ran very well on a day they could have gone through the motions.”
Seventh grade boys Kasey Spigle (fourth), Jacob Richards (seventh) and Aaron Nelson (ninth) earned medals.
Eighth grade girls runner Chelsea Wolsey (fourth) also medaled.
