Conference track titles on the line
Thursday, May 09, 2013 6:51 PM
Just after it began, the regular season for the Caledonia/Spring Grove track and field teams comes to a close this Saturday, May 11, with the Three Rivers Conference Meet at Plainview. One forecast calls for 40 percent chance of rain and a high temperature of 54 degrees.
Ryan Pitts broke the meet record in the 100-meter dash and also won the 200-meter event as well as running on the second-place 4x100-meter in the previous week’s La Crescent Booster Club Invitational.
Earlier in that week at Rushford, he won the 200M dash and ran on the winning 4x100M relay.
According to the current schedule, the Warrior thinclads will then have 12 days of preparation before the post season begins with the sub-section meet at Winona on Thursday, May 23.
Those that qualify will then advance to the Section 1A Championships on May 28 and 30 back in Winona.
The state meet is again at Hamline University in St. Paul on June 7 and 8.
This season thus far has almost been a non-season, greatly lost to weather including last Friday's snowed-out meet.
A meet hosted by Rushford-Peterson/Houston was postponed twice before finally taking place.
