Weather mars early season track schedule for South Dakota schools
Several area sporting events for next week have already been called off or postponed due to winter weather.
MITCHELL — While winter weather continues to delay the beginning of the outdoor track and field season, the Mitchell High School program has added an indoor meet to its schedule.
MHS will host a meet with teams and events to be determined on Thursday, April 6, at Dakota Wesleyan University's Corrigan Fieldhouse. The new indoor meet takes the place of a canceled meet in Huron that Mitchell had been scheduled to attend on the same date. The Kernels will also miss out on the indoor Eastern South Dakota Conference meet, which had been slated for Saturday, April 1, in Brookings before cancellation.
MHS boys tennis has canceled a home dual against St. Thomas More previously scheduled for April 6.
The debut of MHS softball has been pushed back again, as the Kernels were slated to visit Sioux Falls Roosevelt on Monday, April 3, and host Sioux Falls Washington on Tuesday, April 4, but both dates have been postponed.
A Mitchell Middle School home track meet against Brandon Valley on April 4 has also been postponed.
Among area cancellations, the South Central Conference track and field meet in Platte slated for April 4 has been canceled and no makeup date will be scheduled. Also scheduled for April 4, the Scotland High School and Middle School meet has been canceled. The Dan Clarke Relays, in Bridgewater, have been canceled for April 6.
