Mother Nature was not kind to our spring sports calendar yesterday as the Charles City Comet girls track team had their invitational track meet at Comet Field cancelled. The Comet boys and girls golf teams were also prevented from competition yesterday due to the weather. The Comet boys were set to host Waukon and the girls were going to travel to Waukon to open up the Northeast Iowa Conference schedule. The Comet boys will now host Waukon on April 22, while the girls will make up their duel meet with the Indians on May 3rd.
