Sunday April 15th:  All Athletes need to be present to get in line, check in and get “numbered”.

UPDATE:  Sunday times have been moved earlier.  Athletes will have to visit the registration desk again – while it should not take quite as long as Saturday – but you may need to be “numbered” again.  You also need to check in with the registration desk.  They will be running the meet quicker Sunday so that we can get the races in before any possible storms in the afternoon.  They will be registering the Boys and the Girls for each event together.  Boys will race and then they will line up the girls to race.  Great job on Saturday!!
