Dear Editor,
An excellent show of what's good in sports.
I was officiating a Middle School Cross Country meet in Brookville. A spontaneous show of good sportsmanship happened before the race could start. When the time came for the girls to run, only one girl for the host team showed up. She was upset because she didn't want to run by herself. Almost immediately, the girls from the Union County team surrounded her, gave her a hug, and said she could run with them. A big smile appeared on her face and she did compete. When the race started, she was in the middle of her new friends from Union County. I was most impressed by the actions of these girls from Union County.
