Postponements and seedings

The Family River Adventure scheduled for tomorrow morning has been postponed again--no real surprise with the rise in the river after this week's rains. If conditions allow, the Adventure will float by on June 18.

The boys track regionals were supposed to take place last night but the four that are in the northern part of the state were postponed to tonight, probably due to high winds. Meanwhile the heat sheets for the girls state finals were posted on the ihsaa.org website. Rensselaer's sophomore Chelsie Meeks is seeded sixth (of 27) in the discus throw. The high seeding is not surprising because she did meet the state standard in the regional. (The state standard is based on the results of previous state competitions and is supposed to represent a result that would give a top-9 finish.) The girl who beat her in the regional, a senior from Portage, is seeded first in both discus and shot. The next best seeding from the area is Marissa Hamilton for West Central. Fourteen girls have the same high-jump height and can be considered tied for sixth. Alisha Bahler in 300 hurdles for Tri-County and Kristin Fritz in the 1600 for KV are seeded near the back of their fields.

Update: I did not see any boys from the area who made the state track finals.
