Happy New Year and welcome back to the grind to all our friends and colleagues in the California HS T&F Community. As 2014 schedules are being finalized we at Palos Verdes HS hope you will consider for April 5 the second annual PVHS T&F Invite, featuring...

-- Our newly renovated (2009) facility -- with ample bleacher space and warmup areas, snack stands and nearby market, restrooms and locker rooms, and street parking -- which allowed us to proudly host the first ever PVHS T&F invitational last year, running on time within five minutes of the posted schedule all day!

-- The gentle local ocean breezes which keep conditions pristine, encouraging terrific performances on the track and in the field. Last year's winners in our inaugural meet included 2:17.69 girls 800m, 14.97 wind-legal boys 110h, 15'1" boys pole vault, 147' girls discus, and 53' boys shot put.

-- A strong and interesting mix of competition, from some of the usual South Bay suspects to welcome visitors from Orange County and other points as distant as Nevada!

-- Full slate of "California 16" events to sharpen up in an early April invitational setting as the postseason starts to loom on the horizon!

-- The PVHS Invite "Quadrathlon": enter your aspiring Ashton Eatons and Brianne Theisens in the 110/100h, long jump, shot put, and 400m. Marks are tabulated against the multi-event scoring tables and boys and girls quadrathlon winners declared!

-- The unique PVHS Invite Sprint Medley: 100-300-200-200 mixes things up on the first and second legs and sets the stage for a highly entertaining relay race!

-- More swag than you can shake a stick at: free lunches for coaches, free programs for all paying spectators while supplies last, distinctive medals to top three in each event and all heat winners, large trophies for meet champions, and "Champion" stamped T-shirts for all event champions!

-- Entries on episports; modest team entry and spectator fees!

-- And finally, the Golden Voice of the South Bay, Mira Costa's Steve Singiser, will again command the PA system and keep athletes, coaches, and spectators at once informed and entertained throughout the day!
