School is back in full swing and so are the activities and sports that require hundreds of miles of round trip travel for students to participate and compete in them.
Weston County School District No. 1 students and drivers generally leave sometime during the school day to travel to places such as Lovell and Rawlins to play football, basketball, volleyball and soccer.
Late games and long travel times often lead to some sports teams not returning to town until the wee hours of the morning. Late nights and long hours of driving run the risk of accidents because of tired drivers, according to Transportation Director Mark Peterson.
