GOSHEN — The first real test of area boys track and field athletes for 2013 is set for Saturday, April 20, when the 71st annual Goshen Relays begin at Foreman Field.

Coach Bob Miller’s Fairfield squad will be shooting for its fifth straight Class B title after coming from behind last year to beat South Bend St. Joseph.

Among the local teams trying to unseat Fairfield in Class B are Jimtown, Marian, NorthWood, Wawasee and Westview.

In Class A, Warsaw and Fort Wayne Carroll tied for the title last season and are expected to be among the top teams this year. Central, Memorial, Concord, Goshen, Northridge and Penn will try to bring the Class A title back to the area.

The field events will begin at 9 a.m., with track trials starting at 10 a.m. Track finals begin at noon.

Dean Slavens is the honorary referee this year and he’ll be honored at 11:45 a.m.
