INDIANOLA, Iowa -- The Simpson track and field teams have cancelled their trip to Cornell on Saturday and instead will compete in Central's last-minute meet, the Weather Saver Invitational, on Thursday, April 5 in Pella.
With temperatures not set to exceed the mid-30s on Saturday, Central created the new meet to take advantage of a more favorable forecast.
