Hot and humid conditions down at Maui High on a sprawling course took its toll on the runners. In the girls' race, a Seabury girl was just yards away from the finish when she tried to initiate a sprint to overtake a pack of girls. Suddenly, she reached for her right side and went down in a heap. Poor ting. The trainers had to carry her over the finish line, but not sure if that counts as an official finish.

This is probably my last shoot for Cross Country. Good luck to the team as they race in Hana next week, leading up to the MIL Championships.

    In behalf of the 1980-1981 LHS X Country team - MIL Boys Champion Team - thank you for taking those action shots of the boys and girls team. It makes all those practice runs through the cane haul roads and beaches worthwhile. IMUA LUNAS!
