UIL state track meet delayed, might get washed into Saturday

The dreaded weather delay …

The UIL state track meet was suspended at 7 p.m. because of “dangerous lightning.” You know, that’s even worse than regular lightning.

Now it’s pouring, and it looks like this weather could be around for a while. We still have more than half of the running events left. It’s going to be a late start tonight, or the meet will have to be pushed to Saturday and be squeezed in with the 3A, 5A and the Class 1A-Division I. (Tonight is for 4A, 2A and 1A-Division II).

Here are the area champions so far:

Class 4A
Name; School; Event
Joas Aguilar; Birdville; discus

Class 4A
Name; School; Event
Crystal Jones; FW Western Hills; long jump
Lakan Taylor; FW Boswell; pole vault
Kiana Hawn; Forney; 100 hurdles
