Iola High seeking SEK track meet volunteers


May 2, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Going out of the league in style and at home is Iola High School.

Iola High finishes its run in the Southeast Kansas League by hosting the 2012 SEK track meet May 10.

Iola moves to the Pioneer League next year.

Iola head track coach Marvin Smith is calling for volunteers to help run the meet, which begins at 3:30 p.m. at Iola’s Riverside Park.

“We need workers, especially for field events,” Smith said. “We’ve always had a great response from the community on this and we hope that continues.”

Smith pointed out with the help of Iola Middle School staff, Iola is known for running a smooth track meet.

Call Smith at 363-4343 or contact the high school.

Smith said Iola also hosts its IHS junior varsity meet Monday and could use a few workers at that meet. He said Iola’s varsity athletes will help with field events.
