Welcome to the webpage for the Seventeenth Annual Cherokee Track and Field Invitational, the meet designed for young athletes who have not qualified for Sectional or State championships. In the beginning, the coaching staff recognized a need for novices in the South Jersey area to have some kind of formal end to their seasons, beyond their last dual meet, and this meet was introduced. Today, there are several similar meets available to coaches and athletes but ours continues to be the best!
In the past, despite a few years with some incredibly bad weather for the month of May -- it actually snowed one year! -- the meet flourished, serving hundreds of boys and girls who compete against novices like themselves. This year, 2016, the weather cooperated and the meet was, once again, a great success! We hope you competed this year and set major PR's for yourself, and we hope to see you again next year!
