The meet was held in cold, raining weather on a very muddy course. Often at the end of a race some of the top finishers turn to congratulate some of the other finishers as they cross the finish line. This day, the top ten finishers took this to higher level. It started with the top two finishers from Marshfield and carried over to the top 10 finishers. The ten 10 runners lined the end of the finish chute to shake the hand of each and every runner. With the weather being very poor, their shoes very wet and the back of their uniforms covered in mud they had every right to go get some warm dry clothes. But these runners stayed until each and every runner finished the course. The greeted each runner no matter what school they were from. This show of support of their fellow competitors was a joy to watch.
