Saturday will forever be everyone’s favorite day of the week, and this past Saturday was maybe the prettiest day we’ve seen (and felt) all year, did you go outside? Holy smokes it was nice out there! And it was great day for a huge track event at Lee Hedges Stadium.
The area’s top high school track & field student-athletes represented their schools at the Sportspectrum YELLOW JACKET RELAYS. Over 400 athletes and over 30 teams came to this year’s event. An event that’s been ‘running’ for the past 5 years.
The results from the Yellow Jacket Relays can be viewed here.
After the meet, Byrd’s track coach, Juan Plaza delivered this message via social media;
“I would like to thank so many people that made our meet a success. So many positive comments were sent my way by so many folks!! But It couldn’t have happened without our BYRD T&F parents, volunteers, our sponsors, and our officials. Collectively you are best track meet hosts this area has ever seen! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
My philosophy has always been to host a fun & festive event that is audience-friendly and keep the folks in the stands interested and informed. Today was like I’ve always imagined, it was a celebration of the beautiful sport of track & field with great athletes doing their thing!! Great job by everyone, until next year at the 2020 edition of the YJRs!!!”
