Tomorrow is the 14th Annual Nashua North Invitational. Each year this meet marks the beginning of the bigger invitationals around the state. Nashua North is unique because many of the top teams in Massachusetts come to the meet as well creating even better competition. Entries for the meet close today at noon. Lancertiming will be running the meet and the meet will also be covered by www.NewHampshireTrackandField.com powered by Runners Alley. Bring a change of clothes and a rain jacket because tomorrow should be a wet one, but it also looks like it’s finally going to be warming up with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high 60’s.
