All athletes not competing this weekend must return their (washed) uniforms on Tuesday at 4:00 pm. Please only turn in your own to avoid disputes about missing uniforms. If you can not turn in your uniform at this time, contact Coach Giberson to arrange an alternate time.
You will be charged for missing uniforms.
Weather is not cooperating this season. More information on this week’s meets will be posted tonight.
We may just cancel this meet since there are meets scheduled that weekend already.
Unfortunately, Geneva High School made the decision this morning to cancel their track meet due to the weather. It will not be postponed.
Northside is already in the process of adding a new meet to the schedule next week. More information on that will be announced once finalized.
Due to the cold weather, Niles West has canceled their meet for this year.
Due to the lack of athletes to field many of the relay events, and since the meet would be long and cold, we are canceling the girls CPS Relays meet on Saturday for Northside.
The boys meet schedule for Saturday is still on as of Wednesday, April 4. We are not canceling the boys meet for Northside, but will wait on Niles West’s call. The boys meet includes several individual events and will be shorter in duration, so we are not canceling. Niles West will decide on Friday if they will cancel the meet due to weather.
