For the past several years the Superior High School boys and girls track and field teams have opened their season with indoor Nebraska-Kearney High School Track and Field meets at the Cushing Coliseum on the University of Nebraska-Kearney campus. The meet was cancelled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Current COVID protocols dictated that the meet be held outdoors this year. The Class C and D schools took to the track Saturday under fair skies with moderate temperatures. This meet replaced the long-time Ed Weir meet at Superior. Weather issues often affected the Weir meet with cold temperatures, snow or a combination of both. It was often impossible to reschedule the meet.
