Coach Leung is finalizing the meet schedule.  Due to planned construction at Lacy Park starting in August, the Phil Ryan cannot be held in early September and an alternate date is being investigated.  The construction will also impact League Meet #1, which was to be held at Lacy Park on September 24.  We will update the schedule as plans are finalized.

Angus would like to attend 5 or 6 invitationals this season.  In addition to the three listed on the tentative schedule, he is looking into the Great Cow Run or Cool Breeze Invite (9/5), the Bell-Jeff or Rose City (9/26), and Staub-Barnes (10/3).

As indicated in the schedule, CIF-Southern Section announced earlier this year that CIF Prelims will be held on a new course in downtown Riverside (near junction of 60 and 215 Freeways).  A video flyover link is included above.  The course looks like a 5K (3.1 miles) with some rolling elevation changes.  Uncertainties related to Mt. SAC course availability due to stadium construction over the next few years have forced CIF to test alternate venues.  More details to follow.
