3rd Annual Birger Solberg Team Invitational
Date: Saturday, April 11 2009
Location: Civic Field Athletic Complex, Bellingham WA
Start Times: Field events to start at 10am
Track events to start at 10am
Coaches meeting at 9:30am
Host: Sehome High School Track & Field Team
Meet Philosophy: Our goal is to create an invitational that features high-level individual competition while emphasizing team competition and development. With this in mind, we will be granting each team one automatic entry per event; thus ensuring team representation in every contested event if a coach so chooses. After each team’s automatic entry per event, we will be filling heats/flights. We are planning to field between 4-6 heats/flights depending upon the number of competitors entered and natural breaks in entry marks. Our desire is to ensure that all athletes who can be competitive in an event are granted the opportunity to compete.
Entry Fee: $100 for full team, $60 for boys or girls teams only
Individual/small group athletes: please contact Jen Leita for costs
Contact Info: Sehome High School, 2700 Bill McDonald Pkwy, Bellingham WA 98226

Timing: FAT timing will be used for all races with hand-times as back-ups
