It’s finals day at Star Track XXIX. Lots of athletes and events to keep an eye on. Should be a great day.
Because all of today’s events are final and there are no breaks built into the schedule — we’re going straight through from 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. — I won’t be able to update the post updates to the blog as frequently as I’d like. But I will be tweeting highlights, while I roam the infield . You can follow me on Twitter here to keep up-to-date on Star Track XXIX.
