Most schools began practices on March 28, but as tradition during track and field season, Mother Nature threw a wrench into outdoor practices this past week. Fingers crossed for warmer weather soon.

All the qualifying track and field meets will be held in Swift Current. Blue Sectional meet is Tuesday, May 17 and the White Sectional meet is May 18. The SWAC District meet will be on May 25. The SHSAA Provincial Championship (gr 9-12) is June 3-4 in Regina.
