Area athletes at 

State Track Meet

Three area track and field athletes competed in the State Track and Field Meet at UW-La Crosse Friday and Saturday. 

People huddled under the bleachers for more than two hours Friday during a downpour at the beginning of the meet. It took about another hour to get the track dry enough for competition. The pole vault event was held inside of Mitchell Hall because officials deemed it unsafe to compete outside.
