"Thunderstorm a first" in Over 30 Years

09/27/09: Bristol Herald Courier Bristol Cross Report: Wading in Victory

Ryan McMurray & Coach Antenucci at Bristol Cross 2009 10/27/09: Coach Cumbow said that this was the very first time in all his years coaching Abingdon Cross Country that a thunderstorm occurred at a meet. The start of the races was delayed by 30 minutes to let the thunder pass by but the torrential rain refused to go with it. Despite the horrendous weather, the Abingdon girls edged out Science Hill for first place, with two freshmen girls - Molly Foster of Science Hill and Madison Turner of Abingdon - taking first and second place overall. The varsity boys placed second to Bearden (Knoxville) in another close result.
