Dan Horyn Invitational Information (Niles North)


You will be released early from 10th period on Friday at 2:20pm.  Meet in the glass doors area by 2:30pm.

We will be driving to the meet on bus 11.  There will be 2 white mini buses available to return from the meet to Fenwick.   I will ask on Wednesday and Thursday at the team meeting who plans on taking the buses home so plans can be made on whether we need one or two. Please find out whether or not you will be getting a ride home with your parents.

Please plan for a long afternoon/evening.  Dress warmly—it will be cold but there is no rain in the forecast (as of Tuesday).  Bring food and water, a blanket, pillow, other comfort items, and homework.

The lineups are posted.  There are three levels:  Frosh/Soph, Varsity, and Junior Varsity.  JV will only compete in field events and relays.

There are no preliminaries.

Awards for F/S and V levels:  1st and 2nd place trophies, individual medals for 1st thru 3rd, ribbons for 4th thru 6th.

Awards for JV level: Individual medals for 1st through 3rd place, ribbons for 4th thru 6th.

10 minute rule for check out for field events will be strictly enforced.

Team camps in the main bleachers or on the grassy areas south of the track.

Bullpen for check-in and hip numbers will be on the 20 yard line except for hurdle events and 100m and 200m dash.  These events will check in at the start line.

Shot/disc weigh in will take place outside of the concession stand from 3:30pm to 4:15pm.
