The lineups for Saturday are posted.

This is our meet and we need all athletes present and working.  The meet will be at Concordia University in River Forest.

Please be at Fenwick by 9:30 am.

The job list for the meet is attached below.  Please know what you are doing and be there when you are needed.

The entire team is the “hurdle crew”.  When you hear “all Fenwick athletes not competing in the hurdles should report to the west side of the track to put the hurdles out”, you should report, even if you are helping elsewhere.  If everyone helps, it will only take a couple of minutes to get the hurdles on and off the track.

Remember that you need to stay until the end of the meet.

The weather report for Saturday is changing.  It might rain or it might be dry.  Please come dressed for either possibility.  Temperatures will only reach the low 50s.  Dress warmly.
