“With the new conference alignment, it will be interesting to see where we stack up,” said Clay Weldy, Cassville coach. “We are going from an eight-team conference meet to 14-team conference meet. The more schools competing, the harder it is to place kids, so our kids are excited for the challenge.

“I see our strength being in our relay teams. Lamar has been the Big 8 Champion for 7 years in a row I believe, so they are always the team to beat. It will be interesting with the new 14-team conference how the new schools will be.”

The Wildcats will be in action on Thursday at Aurora.
