2016 CYO Track & Field Packet


Competition Changes/Clarifications for 2016:

  • Use of the fly zone is now limited to the 4x100m relays only. Use of the fly zone is officially prohibited in CYO track and field in the 4x200 at every level of competition.
  • The 4x200m relay will be run using a 2 turn stagger at ever Championship meet, including Archdiocesan Champs at Franklin Field.
  • The 4x200m relay will include only 5 teams per heat at the Archdiocesan Championship Meet to help mitigate the risks of collisions in the exchange zones.

    CCCYN Championship Results

    Recap from Mary Ellen:

    Congratulations to the Philadelphia CYO Cross Country team!

    In all, we took 236 children to the national championships.  This is a record high number for our group.  The subnovice girls, subnovice boys and the novice boys came away with a national championship.  The novice girls and the minor girls were runner ups.  The meet drew over 2500 competitors from across the country so competition was tough.  Nolan Yeagle won the subnovice boys championship.  Emma Zwall won the 12 year old girls championship and Olivia Cellini won the 6 year old girls championship.  The top 25 in each age group received medals and the Philadelphia CYO came away with 41 medals in the 8 races that we entered (not counting the high school races.)
    It was quite a day for the entire group.  Congrats to the runners, the coaches and their parents.  It was a wonderful experience that they all will remember for a very long time.

    Archdiocesan Champs - 10/25

    The order of events on Sunday will be:

    2007 boys and girls
    2008 boys and girls
    2009 boys and girls
    2010 boys and girls
    novice girls
    novice boys
    minor girls
    minor boys
    cadet girls
    cadet boys

    This is a change from previous years!

    First race goes off at 1 PM, with each race starting after a sufficient number competitors in the previous race have finished. (Generally 15 - 20 minutes apart) I would expect the sub-novice races to start approximately 10 minutes apart. 

    Individual medals and team awards will be given out shortly after the cadet boys race is completed.

    Parking will be an issue at Champs due to the increased size of participants, please plan to arrive early, and carpool wherever possible!

    Commemorative 2015 CYO Cross Country Championship t-shirts will be for sale near the results & 50/50 sales. 

    If you have ordered sweats or other items, please remember to pick them up near the end of the finish line chute. The earlier the better!

    A reminder to all parents and coaches that the finish line area is completely off limits to spectators. Each week we have athletes who cross the finish line area with their bib number on creating phantom athletes - those blank spots in the pdf results.  If you need to access the restroom area, please walk behind the end of the finish line chute, cross the access road and come up the grass on the far side. 

    Protests or questions should be lodged only by coaches.

    Postseason forms & Meet 3 results.

    I can't convert the .pdf file for Meet 3 results from Run the Day to excel, some kind of formatting quirk. Working on getting raw data.

    FYI - Parent's and Coaches 3k run on the Minor course this Sunday at 12pm!
