2017 Archdiocesan Champs

2017 Performance List

2017 Archdiocesan Champs Program - there will be no copies on site except for officials. (I recommend double siding the print if you can) - PLEASE NOTE - There was an error indicating that some age group shot puts were in different location. That has been corrected. All of the shot put competitions are adjacent to Rhodes Fields. Sorry for the confusion.

LIVE RESULTS - Lexicon Timing

UPDATE - The 100m finals have been adjusted and will include 9 finalists - the heat winners and the next 6 best times.

COACHES MEETING - 8:35AM

Convention Ave - a connecting street between South and 33rd / Civic Center Blvd will be closed until 11am tomorrow. The Penn Museum Parking Lot will still be open.

Reminders on these topics:
  • 3 heats of 5 teams in the 4x200m for every age group
  • Athletes may NOT use the fly zone for the 4x200m per CYO Track and Field rules
  • All 4x200s this year will be 2 turn staggers (first 2 runners in lanes, 3rd and 4th legs may break in)
  • 4x400s will use a waterfall start from the gun. The 1st leg will not be run in lanes. There will be 2 heats.
  • Lane preference at Franklin Field for all races run entirely in lanes: 6,7,8,9,5,4,3,2
  • The "natural 400 meter" lane at Franklin Field is now lane 4. There will be cones between lanes 3 and 4 all around the track for the 4x800m, 1600m, 800m, and 4x400m. Please prepare your athletes for this in advance!

Congratulations to all our athletes! St Thomas the Apostle Senior Boys ran the fastest qualifying time in the last 16 years - 47.60! Results are all available at Flash Results website. Thank you to all our volunteers who helped make the meet a great success, despite the less than optimal weather!

Fun Fact: Flash Results field tested RFID tags in the batons last night that allowed them to track 100m splits, acceleration, deceleration, and maximal speeds. It was the first time they have used it for track and field events! CYO Track & Field - cutting edge!

I have updated our CYO Night at the Penn Relays History (2001 - 2017)

Results will be posted live on Flash Results website.

THE MEET WILL RUN RAIN OR SHINE! We will delay only for thunderstorms.
