USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - A finalized schedule for the fourth-annual Front Range Classic was released today (Apr. 28) after a predicted weather forecast forced several major changes to the meet. The current competition, featuring Air Force, Colorado, Colorado State, Northern Colorado and Wyoming, will now be held on Sunday, May 1, in Fort Collins, Colo., beginning at 10 a.m.
The meet was originally scheduled for Saturday in Laramie, Wyo., but a weather forecast that includes temperatures in the low 30s and snow, prompted the meet to be postponed until Sunday and moved to Colorado State's campus.
Below is a final schedule of events for the Front Range Classic.
