  • Meets start at 6 PM sharp. Come early to register.

  • The 100 meter event will be limited to 22 heats (176 athletes).  You must sign up at the registration table to enter the 100 meter.
    This limit is necessary because we have had so many athletes in the 100 meter that we could not finish the other events.
