Track and Field Scraps Tonight’s Meet in Rapid

The Pierre Governors Track and Field team were scheduled to head to the Rapid City for the Track-O-Rama tonight. However, the winter weather has again cancelled another event. The good news for the Govs is that the team participated in their qualifier on Tuesday before the storm made its way into the area. So the amount of time off is not nearly as bad as it could have been. The event is going to be rescheduled for Monday the 15th. The track and field team is also competing in the Sully Buttes Invite on Tuesday as well as the Legion Relays on Thursday in Pierre before the Easter break.

For the Pierre team, they are coming off a boys and girls team victory from the qualifier on Tuesday so able to use that momentum at the end of the week would have been beneficial.

The meet is scheduled for Monday but officials in Rapid will make a decision Saturday mid-morning whether or not they will still hold the event.
