Opening thoughts: The Palatine Invitational goes way back in terms of tradition. The rich tradition originally started as a frosh-soph meet in 1971 and then moved to a full varsity meet in 1984. Elmhurst (York) boys came on the scene and dominated with team titles- 13. The Dukes have staged this invitational as their season bookmark for many years there after.
Last year the weather was pretty mild in comparision to what we are all going to expect on Saturday. If what the meterologists predict, we should expect temperatures rise to near 90F. Meet officials have moved the schedule around to accommodate the athletes and fans. Please be advised of your adjusted race time!
