The Clearwater Valley/Kamiah cross-country hosted a high school meet Thursday at the Bob Squires Sports Complex.

With seven teams gathering, including a large contingent from Logos and strong runners from Nezperce, the course took runners from a starting line in right field beyond the softball diamond for two loops within the complex and along nearby streets, to a finish at the usual time line after one last lap back at the track.
