OFF TO THE RACES: (Above) Two young riders battle for first place Sunday in the Wood One Wheelers regional unicycle competion while two older unicycle competion participants wait their turn to compete in unicycle basketball (below) . The campus was used as the location for
the competition, held by the Wood One Wheelers, which featured events like basketball, hockey obstacle course and racing. All events were completed while riding unicycles.
