Information for Friday’s meet at OPRF


Participating Schools: Fenwick, Lane Tech, St. Patrick’s, Oak Park-River Forest

The pole vault will start promptly at 4:00 pm.  Vaulters must leave school before 3:30 and will run down to OPRF.

The vault pits extend onto the back stretch of the track.  Therefore, no running events that use the entire track can start until after pole vault is finished.  Races run on the straight away will all be run first because of this.  Note that the order of events is different from past meets because of this.

The rest of the team will leave Fenwick at 3:45pm.  Please be on the bus at that time.
