With a few slight changes to the schedule this weekend the Jackrabbits will still be heading to the Sioux City Relays and the Nebraska Quad.

About the Meets:

The Jackrabbits will be competing in the Sioux City Relays in Sioux City, Iowa and the Nebraska Quad in Lincoln, Neb. The Sioux City Relays will be a mix of DI, DII and NAIA schools. A few schools that will be attending are: Augustana (SD), Dakota St., Buena Vista, Morningside, South Dakota, Sioux Falls and Wayne State.

Despite the poor weather in Sioux City the plan is for the meet to carry on as with a slight adjustment. The only change to the meet is that the all the field events will move to Saturday except the hammer throw.

At the Nebraska Quad, the Jackrabbits will be competing against Nebraska, Tulsa and Wyoming. The field events will start the day at 11:00 a.m. with the women’s hammer throw and the men’s shot put. The running events will start at 3:00 p.m. with the women’s 3000-meter steeplechase.
