Cougar Relays to feature elite talent
Some of the state’s top boys and girls track and field athletes will compete in the 63rd annual Cougar Relays. It is the state’s oldest continuous high school track and field meet.
Competition in field and running events is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
Big Eight Conference powerhouse Middleton is the defending boys and girls champion, but Janesville Parker and Janesville Craig’s boys, along with Sun Prairie’s girls, are expected to contend.
“Sun Prairie will bring a really strong girls team,” Craig girls coach Mark Marsden said. “They’ve got depth in virtually every event, and in a relay meet, that is important.
“Middleton is still pretty strong, and we’ve got great depth in the sprints, so it should make for an exciting meet.”
The Craig High boys are coming off a title at the Watertown Invitational, while Parker’s boys team is unbeaten in dual meets.
