This year marks a special year for the Dragon Relays, as we move into our very own on campus athletic facility and change the name to the Dragon Invitational. The Landers Sportsplex features venues for throws and jumps, as well as a state of the art 8 lane Beynon all-weather track surface. Automatic timing will be provided by McDonald Timing and if all goes perfectly, we will be able to display instant results on our large video display board. We are certainly proud of our new facility, and cordially invite you and your team to help us celebrate its inaugural track and field event.
Entry fees for varsity teams will be $100 for boys and $100 for girls. Entry limit will be three athletes per event, and one relay team per relay event. Preliminary heats of sprint events will be run Friday evening with the top 8 times advancing to finals Saturday. 4x800 and 3200 finasl will also be run Friday evening, with all other distance events and sprint relays run as finals Saturday. Horizontal jumps and throws will have four attempts and be run in flights, and vertical jumps will have three attempts at each bar. We will also have JV heats of the 100m and 1600m. We will have JV long jumps flights as well. JV entries are $50 for boys and $50 for girls, and entries in each event are again limited to three. If there are sufficient entries, we would also like to get a Throwers Relays going this year! This meet is sanctioned in Tennessee, and requests have been made in all neighboring states.
As in years past we will run the Coach Robbie Simmons Memorial Mile, an open exhibition mile that all are welcomed to run! The cost for this event will be $10 per athlete and funds raised will go to benefit the Simmons Family. The Memorial Mile will be held Friday evening prior to the start of official competition.
We sure hope you and your team make the decision to join us for the 2019 Dragon Invitational. Collierville Track is a team on the rise and we aim to grow this event into something special. If you are coming from out of town, feel free to reach out for lodging and dining suggestions! //dop3o1hd82eb7.cloudfront.net/meets/327797/files/dragon_relays_schedule.docx
