UIL Track Meet Delayed Due To Lightning – Friday, May 10 2013, 10:14 a.m. CDT AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Severe weather has delayed the start of the University Interscholastic League state track meet at the University of Texas.

The state meet was scheduled to be held all day Friday and Saturday. It was supposed to begin at 8 a.m. Friday with distance races. UIL spokesman Chris Schmidt says the meet can be held in the rain but officials must postpone all event s all long as lightning is in the area. Every lightning strike pushes back the start of the meet by 30 minutes.Read More
