Weather woes continue for spring sports
The leadoff runners come off the starting line in the 3200 meter relay to start the Cub Relays March 10.

The situation remains one step forward and two steps back for the local spring sports teams. A track meet was held, and De Queen finally played a baseball game. However, the return of the relentless rain cancelled numerous events the next day.

The first home meet for De Queen, the Cub Relays, was held on schedule March 10. It was a good start for the host school with De Queen winning the team titles in both boys and girls divisions. The boys finished 50 points ahead of their closest competitor while the girls squeezed out a one point win.

After at least four rainouts, the Leopards opened baseball season in fine style with a 15-5 win at Murfreesboro March 11.

However, the rain returned on March 12 and washed out two of the larger competitions in southwest Arkansas: the Horatio State Bank Classic tournament and Prescott's Curley Wolf Relays.
