Record Year for the 2016 East Coast Track & Field Invitational
The 5th annual East Coast meet proved to be the best one yet. Meet records fell, and there were a number of national level performances. The meet kicked off Friday night with the Championship Shuttle Hurdles. The boys from Uniondale NY shattered the meet record in a US#1 30.87! Sara Edwards, Bellingham MA, won the girls mile in a US#4 4:54.62! May Stern, Classical RI, won the girls 400 meters in 56.63, a US#16 performance. Who says you can’t run fast on a flat track? The boys and girls championship weight throw finals were a battle featuring numerous individuals ranked in the top 10 US rankings. Bobby Colantonio Barrington RI won the boys with a US leading 79′-5″, and Jill Shippee Shenendehowa NY, won the girls 53′-10″ A big thank you to all the teams who continue to come back year after year. You’ve help grow this meet into a highly competitive event. For the first time in 2016 we ran the Shuttle Hurdle Relay in a championship format. We will continue in 2017 to run a Trial round qualifying the fastest teams to a Final. All rounds FAT
It is the goal of the RITCA to bring you a high-quality, well run, enjoyable meet. We kick off the meet Friday night with some great relay events: Sprint Medley, Shuttle Hurdles and the 4×800 which has been moved to Friday night and replaces the DMR. We will continue to accept B and C teams in all relays. Saturday provides a full schedule of events both on the track and in the field. The meet has continued to grow every year, establishing what is now a highly competitive regional meet.
