2015 CYO Night at the Penn Relays Meet Program

Free! Download and print at home, there will not be copies on site.

The timing of when athletes can get on the field and when the coaches meeting begins is contingent on Penn clearing the track following their practice.  These are estimated times, please listen for the call from the announcer.

Penn Relays Security Procedures 

Result should be online - live - via Flash Results - click on the Penn Relays link later tonight and a CYO Night Results page should be there.

Don't forget to check out this spreadsheet that has all CYO Night at the Penn Relays results since 2001.

CYO Night at the Penn Relays will run RAIN OR SHINE.  If we have thunderstorms in the area we will pause the races.  Penn has a very accurate lightening meter and they will inform us when we must leave the track and when we can return.  We are required to wait 20 minutes after the last lightening strike.

Only the South Stands and Sections EA and EB will be open for seating this year.

2015 Meet Set Up

The set up for the 2015 Region Meets has been added to the links on the right hand page. Region/Division Commissioners should download and restore to check that there are no problems. Track events are set for 8 lanes for seeded races run entirely in lanes and must be changed if you are using a 6 lane track.

Please do not alter or change team names.  If a new team has been added to your region, please contact me to add a team to the database.

We are still using Meet Manager 3.0, but it should upscale if your timing service is using 4.0 or 5.0.

2015 Track and Field Season Begins March 1st! Region/Division Commissioner Meeting - 2/9/15

Track Packet is now updated and available online.  Every coach should download and review.  Major changes have been highlighted below.

There is a meeting for Region/Division Commissioners next Monday night at Archbishop Carroll HS. All coaches should have been invited to attend by their region commissioner.  Any coach who would like to step into a leadership position in their Region /Area for CYO Track and Field is encouraged to attend.

MAJOR CHANGES TO CYO TRACK & FIELD in 2015:
  1. Elimination of the Grade Requirement.  Like Cross Country, Track and Field was given permission by the Archdiocese to eliminate the requirement that Novices be in at least 4th grade.  Therefore, all age groups are now determined solely by age as of December 31, 2014 and 3rd graders who were born in 2005 are eligible to compete as Novices this year. Note: elimination of the grade requirement as it previously pertained to Novices only, individuals who have graduated 8th grade are NOT eligible to participate in grade school CYO athletics, regardless of their age.
  2. Area Relay Advancers have been reduced from 6 per Area to 5.  
  3. Area Medalist - We have returned to awarding medals to only the top 6 athletes/relay teams at Area Champs
  4. The Archdiocesan Track &Field Fee was increased from $10 to $11 per athlete.
  5. All Region and Areas are required to use Automatic Timing for their Championship Meets
Franklin Field is again undergoing construction this year following UPenn graduation, therefore we are still in search of a site for Archdiocesan Champs.  Once a location has been confirmed, I will post it here online.

I haven't updated the Hy-Tek meet set-up for region/area meets yet. I will post it online once I have done so.
