With a little more than a month left before the state championships, the Jefferson City and Helias track and field teams want to see just where they stand.

The Capital City Relays should prove to be a more than adequate test.

"It's always a good event," Jefferson City coach Dan Ridgeway said as his teams prepared to host the event at 11 a.m. today at Adkins Stadium. "It's kind of a mid-season measuring stick. We see some teams where this is the only time of year we see them, so it's somebody different."

Helias is excited about the level of competition on both the boys and girls sides.

"It looks like it is going to be a great meet," Helias coach Tom Emmel said.

A total of 12 teams will compete in traditional events, along with others that break from the norm.
