The Desert Valley League cross country finals will be hosted by Indio High School this year on Halloween, but the race won’t be held at the school.
Indio will be hosting this cross country meet and all others for the foreseeable future off campus. This event will be held at the Polo Grounds just down the street because of construction to the school’s track that is likely to take … five years, according to Indio cross country head coach Becky Baker.
The Polo Grounds certainly seem like they would make a more-than-acceptable replacement, but five years is a long time to ensure that all home meets can be held there.
The course will be exactly three miles and is supposed to be fast.
The construction will also keep the school from hosting track meets for the next few years. No word on where they will host those meets.
