Shoreline Invitational Track Meet Saturday, May 1

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

From the Shoreline Schools Athletics Department

The 23rd Annual Shoreline Track and Field Invitational is Saturday, May 1, 12 noon at the Shoreline Stadium on NE 185th between 1st and 5th NE.

Take Your Marks: Shoreline Stadium will host many of the best boys’ track and field teams and individuals from around the state in the 23rd Annual Shoreline Invitational scheduled for Saturday, May 1. Field events are scheduled to begin at 12 noon, while the first running event is slated for 1 p.m. Eighty teams and over 1,000 entries are expected in the biggest all-boys invitational in the Northwest.

More than the 23rd: Although it is marked as the 23rd annual meet, the Shoreline Invitational has been in existence for more than 30 years. The meet first began in 1972 and continued through the late 1970’s. With the closing of Shoreline High School, the meet closed as well. In 1985, the meet started up again under the name Thunderbird Invitational, and barring a few missed years, it 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

You Pick ‘em: It is not too difficult to find some key outstanding individuals that will compete on Saturday. Picking the team favorite might be a bit more challenging. A number of teams will have a chance at top honors, which include, but may not be limited to: Auburn Riverside, Eisenhower, Enumclaw, Foster, North Central, Skyline, Tahoma or Wenatchee. It truly could be any team’s meet, as many teams have the potential of placing multiple athletes in the same event. Last year North Central defeated runner-up Todd Beamer and third-place team finisher Kentwood for top honors. All of last year’s top ten teams return (North Central, Todd Beamer, Kentwood, Renton, Federal Way, Inglemoor, A.C. Davis, Kentlake, Hazen and Auburn Riverside).

State’s Best Enter Here: Of the 17 events that exist on the state leader board, six of the state leaders will be in attendance. Hot events to keep an eye on are the 300 Hurdles and 4x100 relay that includes five of the state’s top 10; four events have four of the state’s top 10 in attendance (110H, 800, 1600, 4x400 Relay) and four events have three of the state’s top 10 (long jump, high jump, shot put, javelin). In addition, the meet includes a few non-traditional events (Distance Medley, Sprint Medley), and adds its own flavor as the only meet in the area with a scored Frosh/Soph 1,600 meter run. State leaders entered for Saturday’s meet are marked on the next page.
