Outlaw tracksters head to Greeley – Yuma Pioneer

4 Min Read

Yuma High School’s track and field teams will be hoping for better conditions the competition resumes Saturday.

The Outlaws, and all other local high schools, opened the season last Saturday in the Yuma Early Qualifier. The weather turned out to be cold and windy, though it did get warmer toward the end.

“It was a rough opener for the season with the wind and cold,” head coach Lucas Lubbers said, “but we have a meet under our belt and are excited for the rest of the season. Hoping for some good weather soon.”

They should get it Saturday at the University Bulldogs Invitational in Greeley. The extended forecast earlier this week called for a high in the low 70s, with wind not being a factor. Many other area teams also will be in Greeley.
