Athletes came from as far away as Colorado, Utah and Washington to take part in the second annual Tiger Invitational track meet Friday. The event was hosted by South Pasadena High School with the help of Tiger track coaches P.J. Hernandez and CB Richards, along with a host of local volunteers.
The meet serves as a prelude to the Arcadia Invitational track, which has become one of the most prestigious sporting events of its kind in the nation for high school athletes. Some of the runners who participated at the South Pasadena meet qualified for the Arcadia meet due to their placement or times. The Tiger Invitational had more than 600 entrants, including 10 teams from out of state.
