the Course tent. Uniform and bib number must be worn in order to enter the track.
• Field events athletes are responsible for checking in directly with the head judge at their field event area (no

the field event judge to be excused for a track event.
• At staging, athletes for track events will be assigned lanes, given hip numbers and taken to the starting line.

NIKE SOUVENIR BACKPACKS/GYMSACKS FOR ATHLETES!: All athlete participants who compete in the
meet (this does not include alternates) will be eligible to receive either a Nike/Arcadia Invitational backpack or a
Nike/Arcadia Invitational spike bag. Only one item per athlete.
Backpacks are for athletes who compete in the Saturday night Invitational/Seeded heats or in the Friday Invit’l heat.

Spike bags are for those athletes competing in the Saturday Open (day) portion of the meet or in Friday’s non-
invitational heats.

In addition, the top overall performer in each event (not each heat) during Saturday’s Open Session will have the
option to “upgrade” from their spike bag to a backpack as reward for their overall Open “win”. ONLY these
“upgraded” backpacks will be available at the awards tent exiting the track.
Head coach is responsible to claim these athlete bags only during the final hour of each meet session (from 9:00-10:00
Friday or either from 3-4 pm or 9-10 pm Saturday). Bags not claimed by the end of the meet will be forfeited.
Backpack/spike bag pickup is at the driveway exit adjacent to packet pickup (Credentials).

How to Read Coach Draughon's Arcadia List

First - Coach Draughon will be double checking race numbers and times.  If you happen to find a mistake in Coach Draughon's times or race numbers, please let her know.

Second - Runners in each relay can be read left to right.  The first 4 names are the runners in that relay.  Any runners after the first 4 are the alternates in that order.  RED names are running.

* = a runner who was NOT initially listed as a runner in this relay; We do not know if we will be allowed to have these runners race and we will have to be prepared in case they cannot.  Coach Draughon will explain the process carefully to runners.

If a runner has a line through their name, they are not racing due to injury or race schedule conflict.
