Nov. 29, 2010

Cal State Northridge Track & Field has announced the schedule for its 2011 All Comers Meets. The Matadors will host nine All Comers meets beginning January 8 and running through March 5.

Last year, an average of 450 participants competed at the nine All Comers Meets and Matador Director of Track and Field Don Strametz hopes for similar success in 2011.

"The All Comers Meets are a great opportunity for people getting ready for the indoor and outdoor track & field seasons to compete," said Strametz. "We've had the range of athletes from Olympians to people who have never even run around the track. It's also an opportunity for the community to come out and experience competition and see if you like track and field."

In addition, the February 5th All Comers Meet will be the site of the California State High School Indoor Qualifier. A different time schedule and admission will be be posted for that meet at a later date.

For all meets, running events will begin at 11:15 a.m. On the five Saturday's of the hammer and weight throw, competition will begin at 8:30 a.m at North Campus Stadium.
