Meridian hosts Jacket Relays

By Brett Voss.

After taking Spring Break off from competing in meets, the Meridian boys and girls track and field teams will return to action Saturday when they host their annual meet. But instead of holding the 16th Annual Straight A Relays, Meridian High School will host the first Jacket Relays at Jacket Stadium in its place. Unable to fill a weekend track meet with Class A teams, Meridian coaches decided to open the meet up to other classification for the first time ever.

Despite the district opening loss to Goldthwaite, the team remained positive.
