Polar Bear Champs At Henderson Taking Shape

An outdoor championship meet for this season has emerged to close out the winter season in Pennsylvania. The Polar Bear Champs at West Chester Henderson are set for March 5 and March 6, and it's shaping up to be a good way to cap off what has been an unusual season in PA.

The meet will feature seven events on the track, as well as the shot put with the potential for the long and triple jump if it is safe. The meet will take place at Henderson's outdoor track facility in West Chester.
