A midseason morale boost for Solon cross country team
SOLON– Mid-season in cross country. Each week, another meet or two. Another 200 runners. Training miles pile up. Progress? Some, but you want more. Sometimes you need to stop– and smell the pumpkins.
Well, pick them anyway.
With meets nine days apart, Solon’s boys and girls cross country team detoured from the grassy course to the pumpkin patch last week. Almost 60 bodies bent, reached, cut, pulled, dragged, tossed and loaded pumpkins on to hay wagons at the Glenn Shima farm west of Solon. The results of their work day are on display… and for sale… 2-1/2 miles west of Solon on Highway 382.
