"We got beat bad," said Matthew Mitchell of Pittsburgh. "Those guys were body builders or something.

Members of Team Rando Goes Commando competed in eight muddy and wet events during America II Extreme Adult Mud Wars at Spa Beach, in downtown St. Petersburg on Sunday afternoon.

Last weekend adults got to battle it out in the mud at St. Petersburg's Spa Beach, and on Thursday, the kids get a turn when middle and high school students can show up for Extreme Mud Wars. They can bring their own teams of 10 to 12 (minimum of four females per team) to compete in the mud or just sign up individually for $5 per person. Registration for teens starts at 9 a.m. that day at the Pier approach in downtown St. Petersburg. Call (727) 892-5060 for information. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
