● Tickets are going to be limited, you will receive tickets based on your team size. No

spectator will be allowed without a ticket.

● Spectators must sit in their assigned bleacher seats. They can’t change seats even if

there are available seats. They will enter only through the south gate. No congregating

around the track fence or finish line, etc... This is to promote physical distancing and

manage contract tracing. We are trying to keep spectators and athletes separated.

Murray, Highland tri- meet Friday September 18

 This will be a small meet with a jr high meet in the middle between the varsity and jv races.  Since it is a small meet, spectators will be able to attend, so I'm encouraging  parents to come and watch the races.  Make sure you are wearing a mask and maintain social distance from other spectators.  

The course will be a one mile loop, so there will be many chances to see the kids run during the races.

Meet results will not be available until later in the evening, as we will not be using a timing company. They will be posted on athletic.net when finished.

Meet schedule (Times may vary either earlier or later by a few minutes)

Excused from class 1:25 

Depart Hillcrest 1:45

Wasatch Invitational Results

 We had a number of encouraging results this morning at Soldier Hollow.  Both varsity teams continue to run as a pretty tight pack which will give us a better chance for success at the end of the season. 

As we get into crunch time in the season, make sure you are taking all the necessary precautions to keep yourself healthy.

Race results are up on runnercard and at athletic.net
