Central Coast Invitational Features 12 top programs
Field events at Hans Peterson Field underway at four this afternoon in the Central Coast Invitational. Running events get off at five… Siuslaw Track and Field coach Chris Johnson says the facility, on 27th street behind the middle school, is a great venue for watching a meet.
Chris Johson – “We, we put this facility together that was kind of… the idea was to be able to sit in the stands and be able to take in everything. We have everything in the infield, we have performance indicators so after throws and jumps, you know, and trials, people will be able to see what the marks are.”
Athletes from a dozen schools of all sizes… from small to large… will compete with the final events expected to run under the lights. Full concessions, including barbecue, will be offered… admission is only $5 for adults.
