Meet Preview: Holt Pow Wow

Meet Preview: Holt Pow Wow

Wentzville puts the wow in Pow Wow. Wentzville Holt's Invitational has been for years one of the most underrated matches in the regular season. The meet features a massive number of teams and elite competition from St. Charles County, Mid-Missouri, Illinois track powerhouse East St. Louis, and even the East St. Louis Suburb of Cahokia. The diversity within this meet makes for interesting team competitions and individual matchups. Many future state champions from both Missouri and Illinois can be seen in person before they make history later in the spring. The meet is a varsity only meet but allows for three entries per individual events. Perfect for the coach who is looking to give their kids a chance to compete so early in the year before lineups get set. I imagine there will be many eyes across the state checking the live results throughout the day Saturday.

Format for the Holt Pow Wow Invitational

The meet will be run with a traditional Missouri schedule. However, three competitors, we are allowed over the traditional two individuals. Holt's track is six lanes which could slow things down but also allow for additional recovery time helping those athletes and coaches who want to load up on events to maximize points.
