LOOKING AHEAD: The final meet of the season at Fairleigh Dickinson's Rothman Center is the Lou Molino Invitational on Thursday. The meet, named in honor of the Ramsey athletic director who died a year ago, figures to be a tuneup for some athletes who will compete in the state group meets Feb. 17-18 at the Bennett Center, Toms River, or for the Bergen County championships, Feb. 21 at the Armory Track Center, New York.

The third Garfield Invitational shot put/high jump meet will be held Monday at the high school, but it appears that there will be no Garfield Classic this year.

The state Non-Public A and B meets will be held at 4 p.m. a week from today at the Bennett Center. The Group 2 and 3 meets are at 9 a.m. Feb. 18, followed by Groups 1 and 4 at 4 p.m., also at the Bennett Center.

The top six finishers in each event at the six group meets will advance to the state Meet of Champions on Feb. 25, along with the top six non-scoring finishers in each event from the group meets. The girls Meet of Champions and both pole vaults will start at 9 a.m., with the boys meet to follow at 1 p.m.
