Casa Grande is putting on a new Invitational this season on March 9th.
Casa Grande T&F is excited to invite you to the first ever Gaucho Relays! We’re looking forward to hosting a fun and casual meet to get your athletes excited and ready for competition early in the season. We’ve carefully crafted our schedule to provide events that you might not get the opportunity to run at any other meets the rest of the year (or if you do, this may be a good opportunity to come throw down a fast Ɵme and get qualified to some of the larger meets later in the calendar)! Our unique all relays, only relays format is a great way to build camaraderie and bond as a team.
We hope to see you and your shiniest batons in March!!
When: Saturday, March 9, 2023
Where: Casa Grande HS, 333 Casa Grande Road, Petaluma CA
$20 per entry/relay

Entries: Entries will be completed on athletic.net and are due Monday, March 4 at midnight. I know it’s early in the season and you may not have marks for all of your athletes yet, but please be as accurate and honest as possible. Our goal is to have all of the heats be competitively seeded with teams as close in ability as possible. This being our first year, we will cap entries at roughly 15 full teams.

Mixed 4×400: you may stagger your athletes in any order you choose
Shuttle hurdles: the order will be girl-boy-girl-boy
Girls will run a standard 10 hurdle flight at 33” + a flat 10m to get to the 110m start
Boys will run a standard 10 hurdle, 110m flight at 39”
