RHS boys XC 4th at Peoria Heights Invite
Less than ideal conditions suited Robinson High School's boys' cross country team just fine at the Patriot Invitational in Peoria Saturday (Oct. 14).

"It was a very interesting day," RHS head coach Tony Cork said. "We had a lightning and thunder delay right before the girls' race, then had a heavy downpour. Officials then decided to run the boys and girls together, which was 605 runners. I was amazed at how good the times were under the circumstances."

The rain and a sloppy track did not seem to bother the Maroons, as they finished fourth out of 40 complete teams in the meet, which is run at the site of the IHSA State Finals, Detweiller Park.

"We had a great day and the kids had a good time with it," Cork said.

Laswell lesson: Step out of comfort zone
Editor:

On a recent trip back home to Robinson, I passed a sign for Robert Laswell's estate sale. I had not realized that Bob Laswell had passed away, and I write this letter in hopes that his family, or perhaps someone who knows his family, will read this, and will accept my upmost appreciation for the impact Mr. Laswell has made on my life.
