Drake Relays Announce Heightened Security
Organizers of the Drake Relays say they will not allow spectators at next week's events to bring backpacks and large bags into Drake Stadium. In light of the recent Boston Marathon bombings, Drake announced the ban on backpacks and large bags. Other banned items include coolers and thermoses, strollers, camera tripods, umbrellas and weapons. Competing athletes and coaches can bring bags into the stadium but they may be searched. The event will run from April 25th through 28th.
