By an act of mother nature that can really only be expected in Wisconsin, Division 3 Sub-Sectional 1B in Webster, WI was run in a mid-October snowstorm.

Still deemed shorts-weather by some, the un-phased runners trekked through a packed layer of snow. Webster was not the only sub-sectional race hit by the storm - two hours south in Osseo, runners also braved the elements. The D1-1B competition in Medford was postponed due to weather concerns.

Ladysmith (1st, 34 points) and Grantsburg (2nd, 37 points; pictured above) will advance to Saturday's sectional meet. On the girls' side, Cameron (1st, 45 points) and Chetek/Weyerhaeuser (2nd, 52 points) will be racing in Cameron at the Division 3 Sectional 1 Finals.
