State track still on as planned 

By Jason Lieser

The FHSAA announced today that the Class 3A and 4A state track meets will take place as scheduled on May 8 and 9 in Winter Park.

The FHSAA had considered postponing the meets due to concerns about swine flu.

There also will be a makeup meet at 4 p.m. on May 16 in Winter Park for any teams whose schools are closed this week because of swine flu.

The track team at Freedom High School in Tampa could be one of those schools in the makeup meet. Freedom was one of three Tampa schools closed this week because of two suspected swine flu cases.
