On Saturday, Oct. 28th, the RBHS Cross Country girls team and two boys showed up to compete at Benton along with athletes collectively representing 40 different schools in the Class 1A IHSA Cross Country Sectionals meet.
The morning started at a brisk 45 degrees and the forecasted rain had been all but removed from the morning’s forecast, we almost didn’t put our tent up. The girls were up first at 10 a.m. Two minutes before the starter’s gun went off, the rain started slowly coming down. By the time the girls were half way up the first 100m hill of the race, the rain became steady and had set in for the duration of the morning.
