The 39th Jesuit-Sheaner Relays will be on March 22, 2003.  This meet has a well earned reputation for running strictly on time, allowing fans and athletes to enjoy the best competition in North Texas and be home at a decent hour. All 17 UIL events are contested by many of the area's top athletes.  "Highlight" events will be the 1600m, 800m, Pole Vault, 110m and 300m Hurdles, 4x200 and 4x400 relays. Each of these events will feature some of the best high school athletes from Texas and Oklahoma.  The area's top ranked individual is entered in 10 of 14 individual events.  The Pole Vault is contested at the center of the stadium with the best vaulters competing during the afternoon running events for all the fans to enjoy.  In historical fashion, this year the 1600m will combine the top 4A & 5A division runners into one finals race to promote competition and opportunity for improvement among the area's best distance runners.
