Jesuit will host the 2023 Twilight Relays this Friday.

The 2023 Twilight Relays will be hosted at Jesuit High School this Friday, April 28th. Athletes from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and California will come to Cronin Field for one of the biggest track meets in the nation. It will begin around 2:00 pm, and end around 9:45 pm. 

Twilight Relays will include every track event. It will include 100 meter to 3200 meter races for running, shot put, discus, javelin, high jump, pole vault, long jump and triple jump for both men’s and women’s. 

Some big events include the men’s and women’s elite mile, and the men’s 3200. The men’s elite mile will feature tough competition, featuring Tyrone Gorze who is coming off a 8:46 two mile as well as Wesley Shipsey returning from a sixth place finish from last year’s Twilight Relays. 

The women’s 100 will showcase Mia Brahe Pederson who is coming off a very strong anchor leg in the 4×200 meter relay. The women’s 4×100 and 4×200 meter relay will feature a very strong Lake Oswego team including Pederson. They are currently coming off an incredible comeback on Wilson Long Beach from California at the Oregon Relays.

This Friday’s weather is expected to be warm. This is in contrast to the cold and rainy weather that has overtaken Oregon as of late. With a high of eighty degrees, runners can expect great conditions on the track. 

This Twilight Relays holds high expectations for many who are competing. Jesuit students will be dismissed around noon for the event. Make sure to come out and support!
