On Monday, Mt. Pleasant canceled their Friday track meet after a tragic bus accident last week involving their track teams. Two of the schools that were planning to attend the Mt. Pleasant meet, Paris and Sulphur Springs, got together and decided to have an informal dual meet in Paris on this Thursday game day. Lady Cats Track Coach Triston Abron announced the dual meet Monday.
Coach Abron said no medals would be presented and he added coaches from both schools would work together to run the meet. He called it a glorified practice, like a scrimmage. Both the Wildcats and Lady Cats’ track athletes will be able to compete and both schools won’t lose a meet.
Coach Abron said the Wildcats and Lady Cats’ varsities only would also have a meet in Kennedale next Thursday before the district meet in Pine Tree on April 12-13. Coach Abron emphasized that Mt. Pleasant athletes and their community were still in his thoughts and prayers.
