This past year and a half has been a trying time for everyone in this country.  We have always prided ourselves on trying to be the best track invite that a school could go to.  From the awards, the NIKE presence, coaches BBQ and dinners, coaches’ gifts, flowers for the elite female winners, and sold out bleachers.  At this point in time with COVID restrictions, the plan is to do the best that we can.  It might not have all of the fixings, but the track meet will still go on in 2021.  

 

 

Please check the Rotary website— www.chandlerrotarytm.com  for updates for the invitational.  Time schedule will be posted shortly.
