The team tennis finals are wrapping up in Springfield today as they try to finish outdoors before rain crosses over from Kansas and Oklahoma. Baseball quarterfinals in Classes 4 and 5 hope to get their games as well as the spring sports season is coming to a close for this high school year.
Jason West from MSHSAA tells me that 2,168 athletes will be coming into Jefferson City this weekend for the track and field championships in Classes 3-5. Last weekend, we had a national record nearly broken during the Class 1 and 2 championships.
