POCAHONTAS - In the end, Mother Nature won the 2018 Twin Lakes Conference Track meet, as a severe thunderstorm stopped the meet Tuesday night, and Thursday's continuation was cancelled to another storm.

After nine events were completed, Emmetsburg's Lady E-Hawks held the numerical point lead, and the E-Hawk boys were in fourth place, but no team champions will be named for this season.
