State cross-country meet postponed

Sailors will compete Nov. 7 in Fossil Ridge instead of this weekend

— Sailors cross-country coach Andy Reust reported today that the state meet, scheduled for Saturday at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, has been postponed.

“They have 2 feet of snow down there, so they’ve decided not to hold the meet this week,” Reust said.

The Colorado High School Activities Association Web site confirms that the meet has been postponed because of the weather. CHSAA reported that there was more than 18 inches of snow and that the organizers recommended moving the meet because of conditions and for safety and travel concerns.

Reust said the meet has been moved to Nov. 7. It will take place at Fossil Ridge and follow the same schedule, with the first races taking place at 9:30 a.m.
