High school runner disqualified from race after helping rival who collapsed
COLUMBUS JUNCTION, Iowa -- A high school runner in Iowa won a big race, but he won't get credit. He was disqualified for an act of kindness. During the district cross country championship, Zach Hougland helped another runner. Hougland’s coach says the other runner was on the ground unconscious. Without a second thought, Hougland helped him get closer to the finish line.
