The District 8-5A track meet Wednesday was postponed due to rain.

The 8-5A District Executive Committee decided to postpone the two-day meet to Thursday and Friday because of a series of late-morning showers that rolled through the Temple area Wednesday.

Freshmen, junior varsity and varsity field event finals will begin at 1 p.m. on both days at Wildcat Stadium in Temple. Preliminary running events will begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday and running finals will be run at the same time Friday.

"We'll be ready to go by tomorrow," said Temple athletic director Mike Spradlin, who added the decision to postpone the meet was made by the district executive committee and not Temple ISD.

"We've had our pits covered," Spradlin said. "We're going to have some work to do, but we'll be ready to go tomorrow."
