State Indoor Track Championships are Saturday

CHAPEL HILL --North Carolina High School Athletic Association state championships in two classifications of indoor track will be decided on Saturday after inclement weather forced postponed of last week's meets.

The 24th annual indoor track event, with competition classified as 4-A and then 1-A/2-A/3-A together for the fourth consecutive year, will take place at the Eddie Smith Indoor Arena on the UNC campus.

The 1-A/2-A/3-A meet will get underway at ten o’clock Saturday morning with field events and running finals, and then the 4-A championships are scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. The time schedule for the meets has been adjusted slightly from last week's announced schedule.

Southeast Raleigh has been an indoor track force in both men's and women's competition in the 4-A classification, winning the last three of the last four women's crowns and two of the last three men's championships. Winston-Salem Mount Tabor won the '09 women's title while Southeast Raleigh was taking the men's crown.

Burlington Cummings has captured all three of the 1-A/2-A/3-A women’s state titles while Southwest Guilford was the 2009 champ on the men’s side, although Southwest has moved up to 4-A in the new realignment period.
