Atlantic will host its own cross country invitational today at a new site. The meet will be held at the Atlantic Golf and Country Club. Atlantic coach Paul Iekel says they believe the course will set up well for the runners and the spectators. The start/finish area is east of Palm Street on the number 16 fairway and that should give some good views to spectators.

24 teams, both boys and girls are expected for today’s meet. On the boys side, Harlan, St. Albert, Riverside and Tri-Center are among the ranked teams entered. The girls race features ranked teams like Griswold, Harlan and Dallas Center-Grimes.

The school is asking spectators to park on the south side of 22nd Street, the north side of 29th Street and on the east side of Chestnut Street, not in the Country Club parking lot.

The meet begins with the middle school at 4:00 pm. The high school races begin with the JV boys at 4:30pm, followed by the varsity girls, varsity boys and JV girls. Awards should be presented at about 6:30 pm.
