runnersMinnesota – Two high school runners in Minnesota have been disqualified in the state girls cross country meet for helping an opponent who fell.

Senior Kailee Kiminski, of Esko, and junior Tierney Winter, of Janesville, forfeited the race last weekend after assisting Jackson County Central freshman Jessica Christoffer cross the finish line.

All three were disqualified due to a high school league rule prohibiting the assistance of another runner.

“I just got tired and I fell, and it wasn’t good, and then there were two girls that helped me … helped me finish and it was really nice of them,” Christoffer told KEYC-TV. “I’m really thankful for them. It means a lot to me. It means I accomplished my goal of running at state and doing well.”  More

    Way to go schools…let’s continue to punish today’s youth for being decent human beings rather than to reward them for it. Kudos to these young people for looking out for each other!!!
