Relay Meet Still Set Monday;

Makeup Meet Is Tuesday 

The 12-Under Track meet which was interrupted Thursday by lightning will now be resumed/completed on Tuesday, May 3, at 5:30 p.m.
The Relay Meet will be held on Monday, May 2, at 5:30 p.m.
Once again, the Relay Meet will be held as ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED scheduled on Monday, May 2.
This was done to affect the fewest amount of people for the county spelling bee although it may still affect a few people. Also, there will be no admission charged for the makeup meet.
