STRASBURG – The Shenandoah County track meet was suspended on Monday due to heavy rain storms that came through the area, but there were plenty of events that did get completed.

The meet will be concluded at a day to be announced later. Strasburg, Central, Stonewall Jackson and Massanutten Military Academy participated in the meet.

Central’s Saxon Franklin had some good early results as he won the triple jump and finished third in the long jump.

Central’s Brooke Ryman won two events — the triple jump and the long jump — in the girls meet.

Strasburg’s boys were given a big boost by junior Elijah Waters, who won the 110 hurdles and the long jump. Waters entered the meet as the third seed in the long jump. He was scheduled to compete in the 300 hurdles, where he was the top seed, before the rain came.
