Dual Cross Country Meet Part Of Big Day In Ephrata
The Washington and Washington State cross country teams will start what could be a new tradition on Sept. 3 when they come together in Ephrata, Washington for a dual meet to start the 2010 season.
The Wenatchee World talked with Husky coach Greg Metcalf, an Ephrata High School alum, about the idea for the unique season-opener. Few teams in the nation run dual meets anymore.
Metcalf still holds Ephrata school records in the 1,600- and 3,200-meters, and the dual meet will be run on a 2,000-meter loop right next to his former high school.
Support will hopefully be strong at the race, as the meet is at the center of an exciting day in local sports according to the World
It'll be a big day for Ephrata sports, as the Tigers harriers will compete in a three-team jamboree before the UW-WSU matchup. After the dual, the Ephrata football team will play Quincy at Kiwanis Field.
