BLOOMINGTON - Northrop had little time to celebrate its co-state championship Saturday with Lawrence North.
Both teams scored 42 team points.
But as the two teams were screaming, yelling and dumping water buckets on coaches, the weather Saturday at Indiana University turned black and the winds began to whip through the stadium.
The announcement from the public address announcer came to empty the track area as the tarps on top of tents began to get blown off.
It capped off a long, hot day for the athletes at the 38th annual girls track state finals.
“It’s not fair to the kids,” Northrop coach Tom Knudson said of competing in the mid-90s. “It needs to go to a two-day meet. For the studs out here, especially the ones running four events, it’s tough.”
Makelle Skelton and Demetra Taylor each ran four events for Northrop, which won its eighth state title.
