Meet officials were forced to make history Wednesday at the annual Carroll County Invitational.

The meet, which is in its 33rd year, was postponed minutes before its scheduled 5 p.m. start time because of a band of thunderstorms that rolled through the South Carroll Swim Club area. Thunder and lightning mixed with high winds and periods of heavy rain, making conditions unfit to host the swim meet.
