awards to the top 12 teams in each race.

This year’s afternoon meet will include 17 girls’ Varsity events and 17 boys’ Varsity 
events with separate team scoring for boys and girls.  

Each school is allowed only one entry per relay in the afternoon meet.  

We will score and give awards to the top eight finishers in each event except the 
Invitational 100m dashes (six entries only).  

The entry fee remains the same as last year.  

There is a blanket cost of $170.00 for schools bringing both boys and girls teams, 
or $95 for a school bringing either team.  

You may enter an athlete in both the morning meet and afternoon

         competitor.  
         The warm-ups will be 30 minutes for the triple jump and will

         the triple jump will start early.

         event with the bar starting at 5’6”.  The bar is raised
