Stuart Towns, who was the only member of the Forrest City Mustang cross country team during his 1956-57 senior season as well as one of the state’s early pioneers in distance and cross country running, is hoping to help rejuvenate cross country programs in St. Francis and surrounding counties by designing and building a course on land he owns near Crowley’s Ridge, located six miles out on 284.
