AURORA | The weather has cleared enough for the state track & field championships to resume Saturday afternoon and be completed on Sunday, the Colorado High School Activities Association announced.
Friday’s slate was canceled due to cold, rain and snow, but the forecast calls for clearing Saturday afternoon with events now set to resume at Jefferson County Stadium at 2:10 p.m. with a slate that includes a mix of prelims and finals as well as finals in a handful of field events as well.
The final events on the track in 5A for the day could be big for Aurora squads, as Eaglecrest had the top prelim time in the 5A girls 4×200 meter relay (which begins at 7:50 p.m.), while Grandview comes in with the top spot in the 5A boys 4×200 meter relay at 7:55 p.m.
It will be a significant day in field events as well, as eight Aurora athletes are scheduled to compete in the 5A girls high jump at 4:30 p.m. and five are in the 5A boys competition at 7:30 p.m., while the 5A girls shot put at 4:30 p.m. has five Aurora qualifiers in it as well.
