Lettering Policy

  • Parents new to enjoying their student-athletes' participation at track meets will sometimes ask when certain events will take place during a meet or when a meet will conclude. While no two meets are the same, here are some general guidelines:

    Most of our track meets begin around 3:45 PM.
    Dual, Triangular, and Quadrangular meets may be completed in around 4 hours, while invitational meets may take up to 5 hours (depending on the number of teams participating). At some meets, field events for boys and girls begin at the same time. At other meets, some events may begin with boys competing first and girls to follow or vice versa.

    The standard order of running events on the track is as follows:

    • 4 x 800m Relay
    • 110m High Hurdles
    • 100m Dash
    • 4 x 200m Relay
    • 1600m Run
    • 4 x 100m Relay
    • 400m Dash
    • 300m Intermediate Hurdles
    • 800m Run
    • 200m Dash
    • 3200m Run
    • 4 x 400m Relay

    We hope this general meet info will help you enjoy your son's participation during each meet...and help cheer on all our Spartans!
