Wednesday afternoonâ€™s relays at Lake Region went well for North Country Union HS. First of all, and to the delight of those in competition, the rain held off during the entire race and running conditions were ideal (overcast with temps in the 50s and no wind). The relay style race was set up to have the first of two runners complete a 1.6 mile loop before passing off for the 2nd runner who ran the same loop. Times were combined for the two runners and medals were awarded to the top three teams in the categories of all boy, all girl, & coed relay teams.
