As the end of the season quickly approaches, several KCII area girls’ track teams will battle tonight in Wayland. The WACO Warriors are hosting the annual Ekstrand Relays this evening at Roth Track. Fifteen teams from two different classes will compete in the Ekstrand Relays, including KCII area schools Washington, Highland, Lone Tree, Sigourney, Winfield-Mount Union and WACO.

Head girls’ track coach Cinda Blake says the school has received good reviews of the Ekstrand Relays in year’s past, “I know a lot of people say they enjoy the meet because we run the meet fairly quickly and pretty well.” Blake said, “The weather looks like its going to be nice, so we hope for a good turnout.”

The event will combine competitors from the two classes, seeding them based on their best time entering the competition. The Ekstrand Relays opens at 4:30 p.m. from Roth Track in Wayland.
