Wind, snow and cold temperatures last week caused the cancellation of the first track and field meet scheduled for the season, the Icebreaker in Joseph, set for Friday, March 22. The Icebreaker was supposed to have debuted last year, when it was also cancelled because of weather conditions.

Instead, both Wallowa County track and field teams will have the first chance to compete next weekend at the Carnival of Speed in Milton-Freewater starting at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 5.

Last year, with 19 teams taking part, the local boysÂ’ teams did very well, with Enterprise-Wallowa placing 3rd and Joseph 4th in M-F.
