Letter to the Editor: Undeberg Invite provides inspirational moment
Last updated 5/2/2019 at 11:21am
It was a cold and stormy day last Saturday at the Undeberg Invitational, where over 600 tracksters and volunteers gathered to hear Greg Whitmore, Athletic Director for Lind-Ritzville High School, welcome entrants from 33 schools.
He emphasized sportsmanship and unity, especially to root not only for your team, but also for the opponent next to you or in line with you. Speaking to the crowd in the middle of the track, he said, “wanting the best in each of us, helps all of us.”
Then we silently listened to the Star Spangled Banner and afterwards a team called out, “USA…USA…USA.”
Despite the cold weather, it was truly an inspirational moment before the events started.
