Welcome Track & Field Coaches,
The second attempt of the 1st High Desert Frosh/Soph Invitational will be held at McQueen High School. Field events will start at 3:00pm and the running events will start at 3:30pm. We are hoping for some great weather and if you have never been to McQueen Track & Field facilities you are in for a treat. The shot put ring overlooks the track from the northwest corner of the stadium and the discus ring overlooks the stadium from the north end. The runways for the Pole Vault, Long & Triple Jump and the High Jump are all on the inside of the track and the track surface was refinished in 2006.
There will be no limit on the number of entries in an event. The field events will be 3 jumps and 3 throws, please limit the number of relays to 1. If we have more than eight teams I will allow a second relay team that will not be included in the scoring, however the A team must be designated before the start of the race.
We would like to invite you to enter your entries on athletic.net, by doing this we can make sure that the top athletes in the meet will compete against each other. I find that it is easier to manage a meet from a coaches perspective because of the reports you can print off.
