CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | MARCH 26-APRIL 1, 2020 SPORTS & RECREATION 13 13 Cumberland-Lincoln 4th-grade girls' hoop team claims RIYBA state title events that you can pick," McCoy said, "and we'll send you a T-shirt, a head buff, a bib, and some other stuff. There are some people who have that one event that they were unable to make, so to be able to get that medal is awesome. And we're asking people to share (their challenge) on social media so that it's something positive. Look at the challenge that I was able to accomplish in spite of everything." McCoy, whose company also hosts the popu- lar three-race TrailFecta series each fall at the Monastery, reported on Tuesday morning that 170 people signed up, and last Thursday afternoon, less than 48 hours after announcing his virtual event, "I had 87 signups," McCoy said. "I went to the post office (that morning) and sent off a whole bunch of stuff, including packages to people in Florida, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and South Carolina." As for F.I.T. Challenge XIV, "It's certainly not canceled," said McCoy. "As Mike said, 'Once all this stuff is lifted, we'll find a date that works.' And the town of Cumberland has just been unbeliev- able. Mike, (Mayor) Jeff (Mutter), and (Town Clerk) Sandra (Giovanelli) are really awesome to work with. I have a license for the April 4th event and they said they'll just transfer it to the next (event)."
