With more than 1600 athletes from 77 schools competing in 30 events, there's a lot to see at the meet. So we scoured the day's schedule and top athletes listed to find the events and times that look to be the most entertaining.

Here are our best bets:

Early in the day, the 4x200 relays start at 9:35 and 10:05 am, offering a great opportunity to show team spirit and how the runners work together as a team.

Midday, the 100 meter sprints begin at 12:30 and 12:50 pm, both featuring a runner ranked at the top of the state coming into this weekend. Who to look for?
  • #1-ranked Dorien Simon of Lakes HS competing in the boys' event at 12:30 
  • #2-ranked Nadia Herring of Steilacoom in the 12:50 girls' 100m event.

The second round of field events that starts at 1:30 pm includes a host of state #1-ranked athletes to watch, including
  • Rieko Wilford of Curtis HS (whose girls' team won the 2018 invitational) in the girls' triple jump
  • Holland Pilukas of Woodinville HS in the girls' high jump
  • Bowman Star of Eastlake HS in the boys' pole vault
  • Matehya Bryant of Eastlake in the girls' shot put
  • Natalie Holmer of North Creek HS in the girls' javelin

Returning to track events later in the day, the 300m hurdles at 3:40 and 4:05 pm should be fast paced and entertaining. And at 5:10 and 5:30 pm, the 200m sprint events will take place, featuring sprinters Simon and Herring, who are mentioned above as standouts in the 100m events as well.

The attached press release gives great detail about the history of the Shoreline Invitational, the entire day's schedule, and more top-ranked athletes to watch.
