An Extremely Important Note Regarding Estimated Track Event Start Times

The estimated times listed may be completely wrong. They have been provided as a courtesy by the Spirit Coaches to give parents an idea of when a particular event may begin.  The actual starting times depend on the number of athletes participating, the number of heats involved, the weather and the ability of the volunteers to keep the meet running smoothly.
