Columbus schools update: District cancels track meet at Kinnett Stadium

The Muscogee County School District says it has had to cancel a track meet that had been set for today at Kinnett Stadium behind Shaw High School.

"We are going to have to cancel the track meet at Kinnett. The infield is saturated," district spokeswoman Valerie Fuller wrote in an e-mail this afternoon.

This morning's rain already prompted the district to cancel other outdoor athletic events. "Please make sure that teams traveling in for games at your home sites are notified, and that all officials are notified of the cancellations," Fuller advised schools then.
