The Drake Relays may be over but the action has only started in Drake Stadium which will play host to three more meets this month. Drake Relays director Brian Brown says they host the Missouri Valley Conference meets, and then the girls and boys high school championships, and then the Midwest Regional meet.
Brown says this is what they were hoping for when the school renovated and expanded the stadium. He says they wanted to be able to host the championship events. Brown says the combining of the boys and girls state championships helped open up more possibilities.
Brown says as the facility matures it will become an even better venue. He says it’s like buying a new pair of running shoes, you don’t appreciate them until they’re broken in. Brown says that is happening as the track is used more and more.
