2017.04.21 Track: Wolverine Classic Invitational

Purcellville, VA (April 21, 2017) – Right in the middle of the girls 4x800 relay--the opening event of the 2017 Wolverine Classic Invitational track and field meet--the hoped against, but not unexpected announcement came. "Clear the stadium," the announcer said, "lightning has been witnessed in the area. All runners return to their school buses, all spectators must vacate the area immediately." That was, of course, for the teams that were halfway through their relay runs who maybe picked up their pace a bit to avoid the impending storm.

But, after a short delay, the rest of the meet went on without a hitch under broken clouds, but no further rain.
