THE 27th ANNUAL ROCKET FRESHMAN/JV INVITE
The following is all the necessary information for the Rocket Frosh/JV Invite. The competition should again be top-notch and hopefully the day will be a real positive experience for all. If you feel I have omitted anything from this information or have any questions, feel free to call me at school (414-766-5224), or by cell (414-588-3497). You may also e-mail me at . We look forward to seeing you and your team at the meet.
Also, if weather does not permit us to run the meet, I will post on twitter @smrockettrack and the team website If you would like to send me your cell number as a backup, that would be appreciated.
