CHADRON - Winter weather made the 58th annual Chadron State College Scholastic Day competition the smallest ever. Some 1,150 students from 42 high schools had registered, but only 9 schools at 177 actually made it as the rest cancelled over potentially dangerous driving conditions.
The most notable absentees were the biggest schools...including Scottsbluff, Gering, Sidney, and Alliance...with no schools competing in either Division I or Division II. Division III had 2 schools, Division IV had 3, and Division 5 had 4 schools make it in.
Chadron took advantage of the reduced number of competitors and claimed the Division III crown over Gordon-Rushville 2nd.
The Division IV title went to Crawford with West Holt 2nd and Potter-Dix 3rd, while top honors in Division V went to Hay Springs, followed by Edgemont, Creek Valley, and the Pine Ridge Job Corps Center.
Medals went to the top 3 finishers in each of the 40 tests with the winners all receiving a Chadron State sweatshirt and winning seniors were awarded an in-state tuition waiver for next year at CSC.
. Final results can be viewed online at the Chadron State website csc.edu.
