Thank you for support of Big Valley Invitational

To the editor:

As director of the Big Valley Cross Country Invitational race, I would like to thank the following:

The Rotary Club of Lewistown-President Colleen McCusker, Vice President Jim Zubler, Jim Shilling and all the Rotarians who dedicated their unselfish time and effort to making the BVI a great success.

Thanks also to WCHX, WMRF and The Sentinel for their coverage of the event.

Next of all, thanks to the Mifflin County School District-the school administration and the school board, Athletic Director Tish Maclay, Scott Bishop and the groundskeeping crew, the Mifflin County cross country coaches Greg Loht and Jen Freed and their staff and the booster club for making the course available for visiting teams and the event fan friendly for everyone.

A special thanks to Bill Solava who started this outstanding invitational 45 years ago.

Finally, a thank you to all the special people who continue to work and manage this race year after year, making the Big Valley Invitational Cross Country meet one of the mid-state’s premier high school cross country races.
