The Helias Crusaders and Lady Crusaders would like to turn back the clock about three weeks.

"We were ready," Helias track and field coach Tom Emmel said. "But in the last three weeks, if it could go wrong, it has gone wrong."

And that's not good, with the Class 3 District 5 meet set for today at St. Francis Borgia High School in Washington.

"The other teams may be like us, or they may be at the top of their game," Emmel said. "I guess we'll find out (today)."

The injury bug has taken a big bite out of both the Helias girls and boys teams.
