Rainy weather on Saturday caused some problems in the cross country world, although some of the meets involving Hamilton County teams were able to go to the end.

The Noblesville women’s team traveled to North Columbus for what was to be a showdown between the Millers and the Bull Dogs, two teams considered to be among the best in the state. But the competition was abandoned after rain forced the match to stop.
