2009 Arch Champs Results


Team Scores

Thank you to everyone who helped make 2009 another great CYO track & field season. We have many hard working volunteers across the Archdiocese and as you can see from the times, outstanding student athletes.

The Archdiocesan Championship Meet records to the right have been updated. The program automatically uses the top 4 relay names. If one of the alternates should be listed, please email me and let me know who to change. Yesterday we had 16 meet records broken, and 6 new records for the 4x200s!

Arch Champs 4x200 & other details

The 4x200 is a new event this year for the Archdiocesan track & field program and will hopefully be an exciting conclusion to the meet!

At Franklin Field, the 4x200 is run entirely in lanes (a four turn stagger). It begins and ends from the Northwest start finish/line (similar to the 4x100).

There are a number of markings on the track which might confuse your runners. Officials will be at each zone to inform the runners where they must receive the baton and which exchange zone they are receiving in. Each runner is permitted to use the 10 meter fly zone but must receive the baton within the 20 meter exchange zone, same as in the 4x100.

The stadium is open to competitors beginning at 8:15am and the track will be cleared at 9am. Jumpers are not permitted to practice on the long jump runway or the high jump area before the competition has commenced.

Seating will be restricted to the South and East stands. No one will be permitted in the North Stands because of the construction that is underway.
