Boys track teams vie for Observerland title
The 39th Annual Observerland Boys Track & Field Relays — which is the equivalent to auto racing’s Indy 500 when it comes to seizing the area’s track-and-field bragging rights — will unfold Saturday afternoon at Livonia Churchill High School.

All indicators point to a fast and furious competition that may come down to the final lap of the final race.

“We lost a lot off last year’s team (to graduation), but the guys have been stepping up and running well lately,” said Scott Shaw, whose Livonia Stevenson squad will be defending its 2008 title. “Salem is looking good. They beat us in a dual meet earlier this year. They don’t have a lot of superstars, but they don’t have any weak spots. Northville, Churchill and CC (Novi Catholic Central) should all be right there, too.”

Salem coach Kyle Meteyer said he’s anxious to see how his team performs while carrying higher expectations than normal into this year’s event.
