    How about listing information for other schools in the area that competed in this meet? Josh Clark from Niles came in 16th place for Edwardsburg with a time of 16:23:08 for the Division 2 Varsity race. Don’t understand why the Niles Daily Star often overlooks the accomplishments of athletes/students who live in Niles but attend school in Edwardsburg. I realize that Edwardsburg has their own paper but it is published only once a week and not read by many people. More people from Edwardsburg read the Daily Star than they do the Argus!!!
