Interview: Bob Johnson of the VPA on cross country running in Vermont

Back in January we spoke with Chris Keller and Liam McSweeney. They’re two Montpelier High School students who were taking the step of petitioning the Vermont Principal’s Association to classify cross country running as a team sport. That’s because their school didn’t have a team, and under VPA rules they couldn’t run as part of U-32’s team because cross country is an individual sport. Their petition was voted down by the VPA in a four to one vote. We find out more from Bob Johnson of the Vermont Principal’s Association.
