Harriers First Meet Is Cancelled Due To Heat

By Staff | Aug 29, 2013

The Emmetsburg girls and boys Cross Country teams will have to wait a few more days to open their season after Mother Nature stepped in this week to alter the schedule.

Emmetsburg was slated to participate in the Spencer Invitational on Tuesday, but officials from Spencer first postponed the meet until today, Thursday, but later decided to completely cancel the event, due to the high temperatures and heat advisory warnings that were in effect through most of the week.

With the cancellation, the first action for Coach Valerie Pickett’s runners will be Thursday, Sept. 5, at Okoboji for the Okoboji Invitational. Both the high school and middle school runners will complete in the event, which will be run at the Woodlyn Hills Golf Course, east of Milford.

The meet will begin at 4:30 p.m. with middle school, with JV and varsity action to follow.
