If you wanted to compete in next week's Drake Relays and hadn't qualified yet, there's still time. One of the 'last chance' meets was in LeMars. Hundreds of Siouxland athletes battling some chilly conditions. The breeze kept the temperatures barely above freezing.
    
In the boys 100 meter dash final, Sioux City East's Ronald Nash takes the crown with a time of 11-seconds.

In the girls high jump, MOC-Floyd Valley's Alexis Conaway wins the event clearing 5'8".

On the boys side, Le Mars' Mason Wickers cleared 5'10" inches for the victory.
    
In the 3,000 meters, Sibley-Ocheydan's Leah Sievert won running  into a strong wind. Her winning time was 10-minutes, 37 seconds. The tough conditions help prepare runners for bigger meets, like Drake.

"Running in this kind of weather prepares us for the nice weather to come because then we're all racing and training in the same weather," Sievert said. "Running in this really toughens you up for those races."

In the 4x800 meter relays, Fernanda Grajeda anchored the home team to a victory in 11-minutes 18-seconds to give Le Mars first place.

Bishop Heelan's Jacob DeJong carried the Crusaders to the title crossing in 8 minutes and 24 seconds.
