Baylor Track & Field Rained Out At NCAA West Prelims

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Due to multiple weather delays, Baylor track and field’s participation on the first day of the NCAA West Preliminary Championships was washed out Thursday at Rock Chalk Park.

Several field events started, but no events were completed and all of the day’s scheduled running events were postponed until Friday as thunderstorms with rain, lightning, wind and hail moved through the area.

BU’s contingent of athletes was supposed to begin the meet at 4:30 p.m., but a weather delay beginning at 3:54 p.m. never ended and officials made the decision to move Thursday’s action to Friday at 6:52 p.m.

The Bears were supposed to have seven athletes in action in five different events on the opening day of the three-day meet.

WHAT'S NEXT
Due to Thursday’s cancelled events, the meet will now be condensed. Instead of having two rounds in all of the running events, athletes will now qualify in one round.

Baylor’s first event on Friday will be the men’s 100-meter dash at 9:45 a.m. and BU’s first field event will be at 10:30 a.m. with the men’s javelin.
