Hoss Garrett Relays moved to Saturday

By Kyle Roberts

Ruston High School’s 30th Annual Hoss Garrett Relays will shift all events to Saturday, March 25, in light of the possibility of inclement weather in North Louisiana on Friday.

“We wanted to make sure we were staying safe and not getting possibly caught in a lightning loop,” Ruston head coach Trey Smith said. “We explored the option of moving the event to earlier in the week, but we decided to go to Saturday in order to allow for as many people to attend as possible. We’re expecting between 15 and 18 schools to come participate.”

The field events will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday with the track events slated to start at 3 p.m. All events will be held at the Dave Anderson Track at T.L. James Field at Hoss Garrett Stadium.

The relays are named for longtime Ruston head football and track coach, Hoss Garrett, who led the Bearcats to four straight track and field state championships beginning in 1956.
