80 schools, over 1,000 athletes set to compete in largest all-boys track invite in the Northwest
Saturday, May 2, 2015, 12noon, Shoreline Stadium 

36 years strong: Shoreline Stadium will again host many of the best Boys track and field teams and individuals from around the state in the 36th Annual Shoreline Invitational scheduled for Saturday, May 2. Field events are scheduled to begin at 12 noon, while the first running event is slated for 1pm. 84 teams and over 1,000 athletes are expected in the biggest all-boys invitational in the Northwest. This year’s event includes teams from Idaho and British Columbia.

Great History in Shoreline: This year’s meet is dubbed as the 36th annual meet. The meet first began in 1974 and continued through 1982. With the closing of Shoreline High School, the meet shut down from 1983-88. In 1989, the meet started up again under the name Thunderbird Invitational and has been going strong since. The name was changed back to Shoreline Invitational in 1994, with both Shoreline high schools (Shorecrest and Shorewood) supporting the meet.

Ticket Prices: Adults $7
Students W/ASB $5
Seniors and Children $4

Eastlake Returns to defend Title: Last year Eastlake scored 74 points and tripped up three-time Shoreline Invite Champ Federal Way by 6 points. The Wolves return a talented team again this year but will be pressed by multiple teams to defend its title. Most notably Bothell, Bellevue, Wenatchee and co-host Shorewood look to be the teams to beat on paper. As mentioned, Eastlake got the team win last year with 74 points, topping the rest of the top 10: Federal Way (68) Bellevue (60), Olympic (34), Ephrata (33), Cascade-Everett (32), Eisenhower (30), Kamiakin and Lakes (29) and Bishop Blanchet (23). 

State’s best are here: Of the 17 events that exist on the athletic.net state leader board, many of the state leaders will be in attendance, in addition, multiple events include 3 or more of the state’s top 10. You don't want to miss the distance races as Shoreline has a history for some wicked fast times and this year should be no exception! Other feature events include the Pole Vault featuring the top-four vaulters in the state all with marks over 15-9, and the High Jump with three entries over 6-7.
