“Unfortunately, in about a 90 minute period I received three calls concerning Stacy, Allen, and Tye,” said Weaver. “There’s a very thin line between being in world-class shape and being injured — it’s fact of life for athletes at this level. All three expressed regret about not being able to compete or attend the GOLD ZONE this year, and all three hope to perform for the Kansas Relays fans in 2006. I certainly wish them the best for their seasons and look forward to having them in Memorial Stadium next year.”

The 78th Kansas Relays run from April 21-23; the GOLD ZONE is Saturday, April 23 from 2 – 5 p.m. For more information about the Kansas Relays, a complete GOLD ZONE schedule, and ticket information, please visit http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/c-relay/
