While soccer was able to play through the rain last night…track and tennis were not so fortunate. The Knoxville girl’s season opening match with Chariton at Auld Park was called off due to the heavy rain, as was the Knoxville Girls Track and Field Squad’s trip to Centerville. In fact, the Panthers were actually on their way to Centerville when the call came in that the event was cancelled…so the bus had to make a turnaround and head back to Knoxville. The Knoxville Boys Track and Field Squad’s trip to Indianola was put off to today, however due to the fact that the Panthers host the 46th Panther Relays tomorrow, they decided to skip the event all-together so the guys can be rested for the event tomorrow.
