Track Meet Cancellation

On Saturday, Feb. 10 there was a track meet hosted by Lake Travis. There were 11 schools that attended the meet. When the meet started there was slight drizzling and dark clouds. The first events started at 8 a.m.The first events were high jump, long jump, triple jump and pole vault.

As the rain got worse it got more difficult for athletes to perform, only a few of the field events were able to finish but after they were done lightning struck close by and the track meet first got delayed for 30 minutes then the meet resumed then very soon after the meet paused for another lightning delay.

After the second delay, the weather only got worse by pouring down rain and nearby lightning so all the coaches decided to cancel the meet. All of the high schools drove all the way back to their school.

In the end, the results for McNeil were the girls’ 4×1600 meter relay timing in at 24:06.64 which placed them 3rd, Ranayja Diaz placing 8th in long jump with a distance of 13-6.75, Mia Fernandez coming in at 9th place in long jump with a final distance of 12-1.75 and Wyatt Miclat placing 2nd in high jump with a height of 5”6’.
