First of its kind, this is. Far East high school’s cross country meet had been looking for a host and found one in Nile C. Kinnick of Japan, with its old reliable tournament director hand Ed Fogell doing the honors. The event is scheduled for Nov. 5-6 and is to be held for the first time at Naval Air Facility Atsugi and Camp Fuji. No word yet which portion of the meet, the 3.1-mile individual race and the team relay, will be held at which site. But for now, it’s settled. Thanks to Fogell and the Kinnick sports fam!
