As recently as Thursday night Tom Esslinger had sent an email saying he still intended on hosting the Homewood Invitational. That all changed Friday morning with the AHSAA recommendation that schools avoid non-student body gatherings of 500 people or more.
I don't have all the details, but our school system has told us to cancel the meet. I apologize for not knowing this earlier. Thank you all for signing up to come to our meet!Sent from my iPhoneTom EsslingerHomewood High SchoolModern U.S. History TeacherHead Track & Field CoachTrack & Field and Cross Country Director
