Extra security has been ordered for a track meet next week in Spirit Lake, but the school will not call it off. The district’s been getting threats for several months, and officials say some have specifically targeted the Cheryl Maahs relays. In a news release, school administration says certain students set to take part in the events have been mentioned by name in the anonymous threats. The school district’s notified parents of those student athletes, and is working closely with police. The district plans for now to go ahead with the relays, though extra police protection will be provided and other districts that’ll be participating have been notified about the threats. A ten-thousand dollar reward is being offered for any tips that will help police find the anonymous threats.
