Tom Laythe Invitational 2021

Folsom, CA

Meet Information

We are pleased to invite your team to the Tom Laythe Invitational, previously called the Bella Vista Bronco Cross Country Invitational (Bronco Invitational) held annually for 19 years.

This 20th version of the meet will be held in honor of former Bella Vista HS Cross Country and Track coach Tom Laythe who died on January 1, 2021. New commemorative medals will be designed for the meet in honor of Tom.

The meet will be on Saturday, October 2nd at the Willow Hill Cross Country Course in
Folsom. It is our goal to provide your team with an enjoyable and competitive experience on this
challenging layout in the rolling hills adjacent to the Folsom High School campus. The Willow Hill Cross
Country Course has become the site for numerous high caliber competitions including the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Championships. Attending the Tom Laythe Invitational will provide your team with the
opportunity to compete on this facility in a competitive environment similar to that they will experience at the Section Championships 6 weeks later. We have chip timing to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of results!

The distance of the JV races are the same course as Varsity to ensure that JV athletes run the same
course they will run the Sac-Joaquin Section meet. We have also added an unlimited F/S race for those
F/S not in your top 10. This will allow you to run all your F/S athletes in the meet but keep the size of the F/S race reasonable.

The meet includes team awards for both large (2021 California Interscholastic Federation
Divisions 1 and 2) and small high school divisions (2021 CIF Divisions 3, 4, and 5) in all
classifications except for the junior varsity girls and junior varsity boys.
