The State Track Meet started in Casper on Thursday with snow, rain, and cold temperatures.

Some events on both the track and in the field were suspended due to the weather and will be run on Friday on an adjusted schedule. You have to give the kids a lot of credit for battling through the conditions; it wasn't very pleasant.

On the boy's side in the 3200, Grant Bartlett of Saratoga repeated as the state champion in 10.30.88, and Al Spotted of Tongue River prevailed in 2A in 10.13.75.
