PENSACOLA— Rainy and windy weather greeted competitors at Friday's District 1-3A track and field meet at Booker T. Washington High School.

Conditions were tough for the most experienced track athletes, but for a young Crestview High School squad amid a rebuilding year, things were especially tough.
