Athletes and teams from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas will compete this weekend. Texas teams have always been the top contenders throughout the meet history. That should continue this weekend.
The weather conditions this weekend will be almost perfect running conditions. Championship race time temperature will be approximately 65 degrees with sunshine.
