WICHITA — A smaller, yet no less electric, atmosphere is in store for area track and field athletes as they head to the state meet at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium.

In a departure from years past, the state meet is being split up into three days because of concerns surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The state’s largest schools from Class 6A and Class 5A will compete Thursday.
