2014 CYO Track and Field Season

We are less than 1 month away from the start of track season!  There were two significant change to the program this year:
  1.  Relay alternates expansion.  Teams can now have up to 8 athletes listed per relay event.  Any of the 8 athletes listed can compete on that relay at the Region/Division, Area and Archdiocesan Championship meets. 
  2. 4x200s will be run using a 2 turn stagger (i.e. first 2 runners in lanes, last 2 runners breaking in) at all of the Region/Division, Area, and Archdiocesan Championship meets.  This is a change from the past where at Archdiocesan Champs (when held at Franklin Field) the 4x200s would be run in lanes entirely in lanes.  We feel this is a more exciting format and will hopefully put some more drama into the Archdiocesan races!
Here is the updated 2014 Track and Field Packet, which every coach should download and be familiar with.

The 2014 Hy-Tek meet set up has been updated and is available for download to the right.  Please do no make changes beyond # and preference of lanes.  You must use the teams as they are listed in program.  If a team in your region/division does not have a team name/number, please contact me for an updated set-up.
