WEST VALLEY TRACK INVITATIONAL
you for accepting the invitation to the West Valley/Chico Invitational
Track & Field Meet. Due to the
popularity of the meet, several adjustments have been made to keep the
meet on schedule. All races are now timed finals, with the top 16 entrants
participating in the evening "invitational" session. We
have eliminated minimum qualifying standards, and will have a set number
qualify for the meet in each event. With nearly fifty schools participating
from California and Nevada, we
are again looking forward to a day of outstanding competition.

information sheets you may contact Scott Fairley at (530)243-4331 (home), (530)604-6088 (cell) or e-mail at:
