District 10 cross country runners, coaches and fans should expect the PIAA championships to be run as scheduled Saturday at Hershey’s Parkview Cross Country Course.
Superstorm Sandy’s heavy downpours had led some coaches to speculate that Saturday’s meets might be moved to a new location or postponed to a later date. Last year’s meet was run on a muddy course that proved troublesome for runners.
However, Melissa N. Mertz, the PIAA’s associate executive director, said today that Hershey was spared much of the storm’s wrath Monday and Tuesday.
“We don’t anticipate any problems,” said Mertz, who added that officials will monitor the course over the next few days and make necessary preparations or fixes before Saturday.
