TRACK FACILITY INFORMATION
Jesuit completed a two million dollar renovation of its stadium in the summer of 1999. The new micro-encapsulated polyurethane track surface is both fast and easy on athlete’s legs. There are three throwing
areas as well as fast runways for the pole vault, high jump, and long/triple jump.
Spikes :Runners may wear spikes or racing flats. Spikes must be pyramid-shaped and no longer than 1/4 inch. Needle spikes and spikes longer than 1/4 inch will not be allowed on the track or on any of the runways. Spikes will be checked. Coaches, communicate this to your athletes so that they have the type of spikes they need. Thank you for your help.
TRACK CONDUCT/ATHLETE WARM-UP: Our goal is to provide a showcase in which your athletes may complete and to allow them access to proper warm-up and preparation for their events.

meet officials. Results will be announced as soon as they are available.
An award/results packet will be presented to each coach at the conclusion of the meet.
Places in field events will be determined by the total combined distance/height of each school’s three
competitors in that event.
Medals will be given to 1st place teams and the top eight finishers in the Invitational 1500. Ribbons will be given to 2nd-6th place relay teams.
