The varsity Welco Championship meet was held last Wednesday, April 26, due to the bad weather forecast for the weekend. It was held in conjunction with the Welco junior varsity championships. There were 992 athletes scheduled to compete in 1,718 events at the meet. It was projected to be the largest athletic contest in the history of Weld County.
