Meet Recap

The Raiders had a great weekend of competition. We opened the season with The SacTown Invite meet allowing our Freshman and Sophomore athletes the opportunity to get some early season competition. Many new athletes got to experience their first High School Invitational Meet and set new records.

On Saturday, Rio held its first scrimmage on our new Track & Field Facility against Mira Loma. This was a great opportunity for our athletes to get some time trial work before we get into the busy time of our season. Thank you to all the parents who came out to support and cheer on the team!

Upcoming Meets

Sacramento State H.S. Track Classic – (3/7/2019)

This is a highly competitive selection only meet, we expect about a dozen of our athletes will be accepted. Only the top 32 Athletes entered by all schools in each event will be selected. We have submitted our athletes marks and are waiting to hear from the meet organizer to see which of our athletes will make the cut and be entered in the meet. The Coaches will inform athletes accepted into the meet by Thursday, March 5th. The majority of our athletes will not be participating in this meet, however we invite and encourage all athletes to attend and take in the excitement of a high caliber selection meet held on one of the fastest tracks in the country.
