Philip teams compete in Kadoka's shortened Harry Weller track meet

The Philip track team traveled to Kadoka Tuesday, March 13, to participate in the annual Harry Weller Invitational Track Meet.

The rain and wind took their toll, and many events were canceled.

"The only comment that I can make about the Kadoka meet is that it was extremely miserable," said Philip head coach Jerry Rhodes. "With wind gusts up to over 50 miles per hour, it was hard to stay anchored down."

Of those events held, the Philip Scotties took their share of placings. Participating schools were Philip, Kadoka Area, New Underwood, Wall, Faith, Todd County, Cheyenne-Eagle Butte, Stanley County, Bennett County, Chamberlain, Bison, White River, Colome and Rapid City Christian. Many schools included their junior varsity in the events.
