Perkins County, Sutherland runners win memorial medals PDF Print E-mail

Runners from Perkins County and Sutherland claimed this year’s Bill McNair Memorial Medals for winning their divisions in the 800 meter run at last week’s Chase County Invitational in Imperial. Elisa Carlson of Perkins County (left) won the girls’ division while Landon Holmes of Sutherland, at right, won the boys’ division. The medals are given each year at the Imperial meet to memorialize longtime track supporter Bill McNair, who loved the 800 meter event. Above, one of his grandsons, Sam McNair of Imperial, made the medal presentations to the two athletes. (Republican photo)
