The same afternoon, Los Banos was supposed to run against Ceres in a showdown of league favorites, but a scheduling misunderstanding caused the meet to be postponed.
“They got mixed up and thought we were supposed to be there,” LB coach Elizabeth Stonegrove said via email. “So we are trying to reschedule.”
