Xavier Invitational 2023

Staten Island, NY
Hosted by Xavier

Meet Information

UPDATED 9/20/2023


Thank you for entering the 44th Annual Xavier Invitational.

Below please find the updated schedule. Due to the weather, I have decided to combine some races.  We will be dropping the JV races, so all of your Varsity and JV athletes will race in the same race. This will balance all the races to about 110 runners. As this is an early season meet this will help the JV runners.  

I will add more medals to the Varsity races. The teams assigned to each race are below in the schedule. Teams are assigned alphabetically (for the most part) to balance the number of Athletes in each race.  The talent level in each varsity race looks to be balanced.
