"It's not as bad as some of the past years" was the reply from Fitch's Athletic Director Rob Conklin when this past Saturday's weather conditions were mentioned. He reminded, "Last year we had to cancel the meet because the wind chill was too low."
The athletes didn't seem to let it stop them from performing with all they had, even though the temperature hovered in the mid-40s and the rain would go from a light drizzle to a near downpour.
Fitch's boys and girls teams captured the Division 1 title with scores of 182 and 145.25, respectively.
