WICHITA It was a long and wet three days at Cessna Stadium in Wichita over the weekend for the annual state track meet. Lightning and excess rain stopped the meet in its tracks early Friday afternoon, pushing the vast majority of events over to Saturday.
On Saturday, preliminary races were thrown out for all events in order to save time and that nearly worked. Unfortunately, rain and lightning reared their ugly heads again late in the day pushing a handful of events to Sunday for the first time in meet history.
But even through all of that, area athletes still managed to put up stellar performances, breaking both personal and school records on the way to collecting multiple podium appearances throughout the three-day event.
