    Through the program, students eat more locally produced food in cafeterias and take field trips to see how food is raised.
    Saturday's third annual Siskiyou Challenge brought together people of all ages and athletic levels, from Olympic rower Steve Kiesling to cycling wine producer Gus Janeway of Velocity Cellars.
    There was one solo-women's contender and one male duo, and tons of fun.
    The multisport relay had six legs. Teams first road bikes eight miles from Lithia Park to Emigrant Lake. Competitors then raced a little under two miles in a flat-water kayak or on a paddleboard.
