For much of the team, there is a meet in Taylorsville Wednesday the Northwestern 3A/4A Relay. It will be a relay race, so there will be Watauga teams competing against other Watauga teams, and of course against other conference teams.
(Is there really a meet Wednesday? Not for Coach Honea. "Wednesday – short hill repeats. For most people, we will do loops . . . " But don't worry. There really is a meet.)
