Southwest Crushed by City Rival Washburn
   In a daring and close match, Washburn HS pulled ahead of Southwest at the annual Miller Relays this year. With four runners on a relay running a mile each, Southwest thought that their line up might be able to pull ahead, but Washburn proved simply to be too strong a force. Southwest was even seen going the wrong way on the course, perhaps even changing the distance of the race to make it easier for themselves. Says one Southwest runner, "We went the opposite direction for the second mile, so it may have been a couple hundred meters farther, or a couple hundred meters less." Regardless, Southwest lacked the speed and depth to pull out ahead on the tough, soft, muddy and wet (not to mention flooded) course by Lake Nokomis.
