One of the region's premier summer track meets is looking to coaches for help in boosting participation numbers in Oklahoma.

The Great Southwest Track and Field Classic in Albuquerque, N.M., has been attended by 30 or more Oklahoma high school athletes each of the last five years, with the exception of last summer, when only seven made the trip.

To increase those numbers, the organizers of the event are seeking the help of coaches to serve on the selection committee to put together an Oklahoma team.

The 38th annual Great Southwest meet will be held June 6-8. Coaches interested in helping can find more information at www.greatsouthwestclassic.com.
