After a previous postponement, the weather should be great today for the Lone Tree Invitational which kicks off a busy week on the tracks for several area schools, many of which will be in Lone Tree tonight. Lions coach Regan Stone has been preparing for several area opponents.
“We have Waco coming in; we have Highland coming in, IMS, L&M and Keota. We’re going to have seven teams there so we’re looking forward to it.”
The relay had to be pushed back to this Monday due to weather causing a few teams to squeeze three meets in this week, including back-to-back Monday and Tuesday. Because of the pushed back date and some kids returning from a trip to Florida, Keota girls coach Dan Stout says this meet will have a different feel to it than usual.
“It’s going to be more of a practice-type setting for some of our kids because I’m sure they haven’t done a lot of running around down there at Universal Studios and things like that so it’ll be a little different for us on Monday and Tuesday.”
