2006 XO Invite - get ready for year 3
10/26/05 -

EUGENE - The 3rd Annual XO Invite at Hayward Field will be held on Saturday, April 15th, 2006.  The meet will be commencing at 11:00am and ending at 9:00pm.

The XO Invite is an elite High School team meet at Hayward Field, before the Oregon state meet. With live music, games and Prizes for fans, freshman and wheelchair championships, awards for the top 8 finishers, a coed team championship, DMR, SMR, steeplechase, hammer throw and much much more... 40 teams, 1300 athletes, thousands of fans... Get ready for year 3!

We hope you like the new and improved XO Invite website. We have added a ton of great features such as a top 10 list with pictures of the record holders in each event, past photos and results and even a highlight video of last year's meet. We tried to design the website with a simple layout that is functional and clean while still holding on to a little XO style. If you have any suggestions for improvement, let us know.

This year's meet will be very similar to past meets in terms of format and excitement with a couple new twists and additions (read more about our biggest addition, "XO Elite Sections" at the Oregon Invite the following weekend). Please check out the meet information page and the about the meet page for more details.

At this time the team entry process is over and the meet is full with a waiting list. The entry process for this meet was done by each teams coach submitting an online invite request form in late fall. Please check out our entry information page to see how your team could qualify for next year's meet. The individual entry process (for non invited team's athletes), will begin April 1st, so please check the individual standards to see if you qualify.

Over 200 volunteers, officials and staff are required for the XO Invite each year. Please go to our volunteer or officials and staff pages to see how you can make this meet a success. The meet could not survive without the people that give up their time to help.

Lastly, check out for other pictures, stories and video once we get closer to the meet!

Hope to see you April 15th,

Team XO was founded and created by former University of Oregon Track Athletes. We are located in Eugene, Oregon, home of historic Hayward Field and Track Town USA, as all of you already know. The team is comprised of primarily post collegiate athletes that train in the state of Oregon or graduated from the University of Oregon. Team XO has been created for elite post collegiate Track & Field / Cross Country athletes looking to continue their athletic career, while competing at the highest possible level. Although creation remains in the early stages, the vision is clear. We look to provide a home and unified team atmosphere where driven, elite athletes can work together to achieve success both individually and as a team. We are always looking to expand our team with even more talented athletes that share the same drive and passion that it takes to excel at the highest level. In doing this, we look to become the premier Track & Field Team in the Nation.

Off the track, field and trail, we try and extend our vision of the way we feel our sport should be. We host an elite team high school track meet at Hayward Field called the XO Invite, direct and coach a fun low cost athletic kid’s camp called the XO Athletic Camp, and volunteer hundreds of hours a year in our community.
