Don Relays on Friday, April 20, 2018


The Don Relays are at Notre Dame College Prep, 7655 W Dempster St. in Niles, Illinois.

Lineups are posted.

Be at the glass doors area at 3:20pm.  The bus leaves promptly at 3:30pm.

It’s going to get very cold at this meet.  Dress as warmly as you can.  Bring an old blanket.  Wear a hat.  Wear gloves.  

Check the post from April 1 about cold weather:


You can compete and set records in cold weather.  Our school long jump record was set in just the kind of weather we’ll have on Friday.  But, if you aren’t over-dressed, you will be miserable.
