In 1986, then Peoria Journal Star
writer Mike Bailey wrote the following story about the IHSA Cross Country State Finals at Detweiller Park in Peoria entitled "It's A Race You Never Forget"
The story was republished by the IHSA in the 1987 IHSA Cross Country State Final program. A scan of the story from that program, complete with its original blue hue, is available below (please note that the contrast was darkened in Photoshop to increase readability)
