SAN BENITO — The 2019 Rio Grande Valley track & field season is officially off and running.

Well, for the most part.

Wet and chilly weather forecasts earlier in the week led to the cancellation of field events, but temperatures continued to fall into the low 40s, forcing meet officials at the Bobby Morrow Relays to call it a day Friday in San Benito.

San Benito athletic director Dan Gomez said the decision was made with the athletes in mind.

“The No. 1 concern for any coach is the safety of their athletes,” he said. “With the weather the way it was, we decided to cancel our field events and our track events. We wanted to get some of our sprints in because the coaches wanted to see their kids work out and compete against other schools. We got in what we could and cut it short so everyone could get home safely.”
