The NJSIAA Cross-County Meet of Champions will remain as scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 20 at Holmdel Park, NJSIAA XC Tournament Director Al Stumpf announced on Sunday afternoon.
After Saturday's postponement of three races (both Non-Public A races and boys Group 2) to this Tuesday, Stumpf said he would look into the possibility of moving the Meet of Champions to Monday, Nov. 22 to give teams and runners who qualify out of Tuesday's races more time between races.
But Stumpf said on Sunday that pushing the meet back to Monday or any other weekday isn't going to happen.
"We are keeping the Meet of Champions on Saturday for logistical reasons, ' said Stumpf. "Getting kids out of school, arranging for buses, and getting the necessary personnel to staff the meet were all factors in the decision.''
The race times for the Meet of Champions are 11 a.m. for the girls and 11:45 a.m. for the boys. Parking is permitted in the parking lots at Holmdel Park for the M of C.
Stumpf also announced that parking will be permitted at Holmdel Park for this Tuesday's meet when the Non-Public A boys and girls, and the boys Group 2 races are held. The Non-Public A girls will run at 2 p.m. The boys Group 2 race is scheduled for 2:30 p.m., and the boys Non-Public A race, featuring No. 1 Union Catholic and No. 2 Christian Brothers Academy, is scheduled for 3 p.m.
