Here is information about our meet on Wednesday, May 19. The time schedule is tentative, of course. We will start the meet as close as we can to 4:00 PM, however.
Please make meet entries for Illinois Prep Top Timing at Milesplit.com. Deadline is Monday, May 17 at 12:00 PM.
We will need your help with some of the field events. Kids are fine for raking, but you need to supply an adult to help run a field event: We will make work assignments when we see entries. Long jump ( ), Triple jump ( ), pole vault (Ignatius), and high jump ( ). SP: Ignatius, with any help available.
Please note that we are running at our new track across Roosevelt Road, south from our school. A convenient drop off location would be at the Wolfgate on Morgan Street, south of Roosevelt. With apologies, we cannot throw the discus at this meet; we are hopeful about future meets.
8-lane, 400-meter all-weather track. Spikes allowed, but short spikes might be best. This track is across from the school at Morgan and Roosevelt.
This is a one-level meet, but we will do our best to seed athletes of a similar level in each race. You can help by providing realistic seed times. Please supply an estimated seed time for every athlete you can estimate.
Please complete registration and entries at Milesplit by Monday, May 10 12:00 PM. For meet entry questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries are unlimited in each event.
Waterfall and Super-alley starts for 4x800, 3200, 800, and 1600.
You will get full results for all participants.
We will allow scratches and substitutions on the day of the event. But it is easier to scratch or even just substitute where runners have already been entered in races and assigned lanes, so keep that in mind as you prepare your entries. When in doubt, enter the athlete!
We are asking that all track meet athletes stay off the soccer/football field during the competition. Prepare and relax in your camps.
We will make camps on the West side of the track, outside the track and fence. First team to arrive should go all the way south. The next team should take a spot ten feet away, and so on. Please keep your teams separate as much as possible.
Athletes should warm up outside the track. There are fields and sidewalks available for warm up running. This is a meet, not a practice; we have to limit activity and coaching inside the track as much as possible. We will have some hurdles available for warm up before the meet on the sprint straightaway.
There are no spectators from other schools allowed at the meet. Please bring participating athletes only.
