Great Indian Relay Race


We started in first, but it was a strong current.  With 400 yards to go, we were ‘neck and neck’ with the Tuscy’s.  Then, we managed to pull away.  With this, and the win in the Tug of War, we have a chance to win it all!”    –Ford, Cayuga

The title of this post describes not only this morning’s boys Indian event, but the status of the chase for the overall Indian Games title.  With just one more game, and two judged projects, only eight and one-half points separate all five tribes in the race for the 2013 championship.

Ford, along with Brodie, ran the key rowboat leg in this morning relay race, preserving the Cayuga lead, which Elrick sealed with a sizzling 1.75-mile final leg run.  Despite having the least accurate of the five messages, the Tuscarora, managed an overall second place tie (with the Onondaga), due to their strength on the course.

Both the Seneca and Mohawk contended early, but faded late, in this contest that featured running, rowing, kayaking, portaging, biking, swimming and canoeing.
