​IMPORTANT MEET ALERT for Friday & Saturday Events at 39th O'Grady Relays

4/26/2019 – 11:03am

Meet director Rob Murray announced this morning that "all events scheduled for TODAY (Friday) at the 39th O'Grady Relays have been cancelled due to the heavy rain and potential for thunderstorms this evening. The safety of our athletes, coaches, officials and spectators are our number one priority."

Murray also stated that "The weather for Saturday weather is much better and we are excited to bring you all of Saturday team scoring events.  The event will start promptly Saturday at 9:00am for field events.  We suggest you get to Bethel High School early enough to ensure that your athletes are ready to compete at 9:00am."

Additionally, the Girls Pole Vault will be contested on Saturday with a field limited to only two contestants per team for both Boys and Girls due to the single venue to run both Girls and Boys events.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, the pole vault relays for boys and girls will be reduced to only two members. Be sure to communicate to your third vaulter that they will not be competing this Saturday.
  2. The order of events for pole vault relays will be Girls followed by Boys.
  3. Coaches are asked to declare their intent to compete in the Coed 8x100m relay at the start of the boys 3200m Run. If you do not declare you will not be included in that event.
  4. Live Results can be found at the following link ..... http://paynescornertimingco.fatcow.com/Live_Results_7/evtindex.htm

Welcome to the Meet: 

Meet Director Rob Murray welcomes Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island coaches and their teams to the 39th O'Grady Relays, scheduled for 5:00pm- 8pm on Friday April 26 and 9:00am on Saturday April 27, 2019. The meet this year has been temporarily moved to Bethel High School in Bethel CT. The O'Grady Relays are in honor of the former boys' track and field coach, the late Dan O'Grady. A CIAC Border sanction has been obtained for this meet. The meet is also open to coaches and their middle school age athletes in grades 5-8 competing with their Middle School team or Club Teams with athletes 10-15 years old for the 800m Sprint Medley Relay, Long Jump and 800m events.

Note that there are separate Athletic.net Event registrations for Friday and Saturday events.

ALERT for Coaches of Girls Pole Vaulters: Due to the change in venue, the Girls Pole Vault is scheduled for Friday, but event entries must be made in the Saturday meet in Athletic.net in order to track the 2-event maximum and team scoring for Saturday events.

Team scores will be calculated by school size (divisions) and overall score. Trophies are awarded to the winning team in each Division as well as an overall team champion. One of the great things about this meet is that it is truly a "team" event surrounded by a "big meet" atmosphere.
