The meet was plagued with the same winds that blasted through Southern Inyo County, gusting to 40 mph in Boron. â€śThe winds made a mess of times and distances,â€ť said Lone Pine track coach Dale Newell. â€śBut track and field athletes are a bit odd, so the Eagles actually enjoyed the misery.â€ť
The teamâ€™s next meet is the DML preliminaries at Antelope Valley College, Wednesday, April 27.
