Every spring, since 1996, the Roswell Rotary Club and Roswell High School have sponsored an invitational track meet to provide a high profile opportunity for high school track and field teams from throughout Georgia to compete against the best in the state.

The 17th annual Roswell Rotary Relays will be held at the Roswell High School track March 16.

The field events will start at 9 a.m. and the running events will start at noon.

This year 26 high school boys’ and girls’ teams from throughout the metro Atlanta area will participate.

This is one of the premier track and field events of the high school season and one of the last competitions before the regional and state meets.

Thousands of young competitors and their parents show up each year, but the public also is encouraged to come out to enjoy the day.

The meet is also a fund raiser for the Roswell High School Booster Club, which is selling tickets to the event and will operate the concession stand at the stadium.

Additionally, the Rotary Relays present an opportunity for the service clubs of Roswell High School to work at the event and earn community service points.

Tickets at the gate are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

For more information, contact the meet director, Roswell’s Coach Andy Schultz, at schultza@fulton or at the main number of Roswell High School, (770) 552-4500.
