Today is the Little Hawkeye Conference Cross Country Meet in Knoxville. On the boys side the Panthers are one of the favorites to win along with Pella and Grinnell. Coach Mike Moats has run through and scores almost every conceivable scenario and says nearly every time a different team is first second and third. He says when the gun goes up this afternoon at Pine Knolls Country Club, none of those sceneries will matter. He says by then the runners will have to figure out how to put themselves in position to win. Pella is favored in the girl’s race, however Moats says after last week’s effort at Centerville, he says Knoxville is poised to claim as high as second tomorrow. The middle school races will begin at 4:15, the varsity races are scheduled to start following the middle school races.
