The 2022 indoor track season for prep athletes around Wyoming is finally here. The first meets of the season are this weekend.

The new season is closer to normal. Fans will be allowed back at venues, and larger meets will be held this year. Some Covid parameters have been eased, but you’ll likely see workers and athletes that are not competing still masked while at meets.

The state championships are back to being a two-day meet on March 4 and 5, 2022, in Gillette at the Campbell County Fieldhouse or Recreation Center with boys and girls competing together.

It’s time for the season to get rolling. A lot of schools are heading to Casper on Saturday, but a few others have opted to attend a meet out of state.
