Waldoboro — The high school distance running event started with overcast skies and cold weather before things turned a bit more ominous — and plenty more wet — down the home stretch.

But that did not dampen the spirits of the Midcoast cross-country student-athletes who participated on Friday afternoon, Oct. 16 in a tri-meet hosted by Medomak Valley.

Watch video and see more than 100 photos below.
