The Mid-Prairie track and field teams will travel to Durant tonight for the Cedar Valley Conference meet.
This meet was originally scheduled for last Thursday, but due to the inclement weather that came up, they pushed it back to today.
Head boy’s track and field coach Aaron Zander talked about the dilemma between choosing the conference meet today, or districts on Thursday.
“It really detracts from what we would usually put into a conference meet, with it being the same week, I’m looking not a conference now, but at districts,” Zander said. “I’m thinking to myself, ‘well I need my guys tapered down, ready for districts, qualified for state,’ and if we run really hard on Monday at the conference meet, I’m not going to see the best results at districts.”
The CVC conference meet in Durant today starts at 4:30.
