Weather in the North


#1

Many meets in the Northwestern part of the state are canceled AGAIN due to snow. This is May ladies and gentlemen.

While I haven’t heard much from Bryce Miller, he should be on people’s radars. I hope the UMKC bound senior has enough adequate training and races in to do what he needs to do at the end of the year.

In other Northern news, Ladysmith opted to host their home meet Monday in retaliation to both the weather and Friday’s canceling. Both the guys and girls ran together in the 3200m and the overall victor was Ladysmith’s Andrea Ostenso in 11:02. Even though the boys were in the race it was pretty much a ‘solo’ effort as she nearly lapped the field. Ostenso has run six races this week: two 4x8 legs, a 5:26, 5:45, 11:02 and 11:45. Safe to say she’s racing herself into shape and she’ll probably drop time with competition and better weather.

Actually many schools had ANOTHER snow day today, or are being let out early because of more heavy wet snow. Well over 6" is on the ground up here already with more coming down. Tomorrow’s high is only 35 so this will be with us for a few days.
