  Region II track meets rescheduled
Area athletes to compete at Commerce, Denton college campuses

CEDAR CREEK LAKE–Following a statewide outcry from coaches and school districts, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) rescinded its earlier decision to scrap regional track meets last week.
Official word that 20 regional meets would be rescheduled and not cancelled (due to swine flu concerns) came in a news release issued late Thursday, just after The Monitor’s Sunday issue went to press.
“The decision to suspend competition was not a decision we took lightly,” UIL executive director Dr. Charles Breithaupt said in the release.
“Much effort and consideration was given to resurrect the regional track meets and change the dates for the state meet,” he added. “With the cooperation of our regional sites and the University of Texas, we are now able to hold the regional and state track meets as we had originally intended.”
As rescheduled, Texas A&M University-Commerce will host the Class 3A Region II track meet Friday and Saturday, May 15-16. More than three dozen athletes from Eustace and Kemp high schools will be competing.
The University of North Texas in Denton will host the Class 4A Region II track meet Tuesday and Wednesday, May 12-13. Three Mabank High School athletes will be competing.
The state track meet was rescheduled to Friday and Saturday, June 5-6, at Myers Stadium on the UT campus.

Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–Mabank High School senior Jason DeLong took first place in the District 15-4A golf tournament and placed high at the Region II golf tournament in Denton.
At the district tournament April 6-7 on the Creekview Golf Course in Crandall, DeLong shot rounds of 89 and 74 to finish with a tournament total of 163, one shot better than Forney’s Ethan Doan.
DeLong shot rounds of 76 and 92 to total 168 at the Region II tournament, held at Robson Ranch Golf Course in Denton April 22-23.
“Jason had a very good year, and he will be missed on our golf team next year,” golf coach Jeff Lee noted.
“I am extremely proud of his play this year, and especially the way he fought back on the second day of district to claim the individual championship,” Lee added.
