  On Saturday, April 2, 2016, Northside traveled to River Park Track in Chicago, Illinois for the FIRST Outdoor Track meet of the seaosn, the Eric Nelson Classic.

 It is important for Northside athletes to learn how to compete in many different weather elements early in the season. The IHSA does not delay a Track & Field meet unless there is lightning, and track meets take place in all kinds of different weather conditions. Several IHSA Sectional and/or State Track & Field meets have taken place in cold, heat, rain, high winds, hail, and even snow.

 Northside was fortunate to experience most of the weather conditions that they will encounter during the season at the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic. The race conditions on Saturday, April 2, 2016 included high winds, rain, cold weather, hail, and snow. This experience will be very valuable later in the season.

 The meet featured Chicago Bulls College Prep, Von Steuben, Ogden International, Chicago Christ the King, Amundsen, and host Northside College Prep.

 The 2016 Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic provided a very special Track & Field experience for all participants.

 Medals were awarded to the Top 3 Athletes in each event. The Medals are engraved with each athlete's name on it, and shipped to each respective school. Goody bags were also given to all participants on every team.

 Once a Northside athlete holds the school record and has qualified for the IHSA State Track & Field Championships in that event, the event is then named after the athlete in the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic, beginning the following year. 

 Plaques were awarded to the winner of the Triple Jump in honor of Northside Alumni Maria Torres, the winner of the 3200m run in honor of Northside Alumni Madison Weatherly, the winner of the Shot Put in honor of Northside Alumni Veronica Schwartz, the winners of the 4x800m Relay in honor of IHSA State Qualifiers Fiona Casey, Sara McCoy and Northside Alumni Caroline Owens, and Elizabeth O'Conor.

 River Park Track was spectacular. It is one of the best venues in Chicago for Track & Field.

 A special thanks to Northside parents Juan and Diana Sotomayor for serving as the clerks of the course, and for checking in over 1,000 athletes, and providing them with hip numbers for each event. 

 A special thanks to the Sotomayor Family, the Franke Family, and the Northside Coaching Staff for helping make over 500 goody bags for the Eric Nelson Classic.

 The Team would also like to thank the McManus Family for helping transport Tents and Equipment at dawn to River Park Track in preparation for the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic.

 The Team would also like to thank Northside Distance Coach Michael Giberson, Sprints Coach Matthew Madera, Hurdles Coach Makenzie Carr, Jumps Coach David Diaz, Throws Coach Erasmo De La Cruz, the McManus Family, the Brown Family, the Rosen Family, and the Washington Family for helping with all of the heavy lifting of equipment before and during the meet.

 The Team would also like to thank Northside Parent Marc Rosen for taking photos of the 2016 Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic.

 The Team would also like to thank the McManus Family, the Friedler Family, the Webster Family, and ALL of the Northside parents that contributed to the hospitality table for the Northside athletes. It helped make the meet a more enjoyable experience for all of the athletes and members of the coaching staff.

 The Team would also like to thank Northside Volunteer Coach Jose Nebrida for providing Bananas for the Eric Nelson Classic.

 The Team would also like to thank North Park University Head Coach Geoff Masanet, and staff for providing Northside with all of the Track & Field Equipment for the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic. 

 The Team would also like to thank Vera Onate and the Chicago Park District for all of their help in preparation for the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic. 

 The Team would also like to thank Northside Athletic Director Andrew Mayer for all of his help in preparation and meet management for the Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic.

  Northside would also like to thank IHSA Official Kerry Dean for serving as the Starter for the 2016 Eric Nelson Track & Field Classic. Dean was outstanding!

 Northside would also like to thank Prime Time Timing ServicesThe meet was finished in record time in difficult conditions thanks to their tremendous efforts. Prime Time Timing Services also published the official results immediately after each event was finished on the wall next to the concession stand. Team scores were also provided after each event.

 Last, the Northside Coaching Staff would like to thank all of the Northside athletes. Hours after the meet ended, Northside athletes stayed at River Park Track putting away equipment. Thanks again.

 The athlete of the meet was Chicago Bulls College Prep Junior Cornesha Houston , who won the 100m dash, the 200m dash, and helped the Bulls win the 4x200m Relay. Houston scored 22.50 points.

 The meet was scored on the following scale for individual events and relays: 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1.

 The Time Trial will help determine our initial Varsity, Junior Varsity, Sophomore, and Freshman 4x400m Relay Teams.

 The King and Queen of the Quarter and Shot Put competitions give Northside athletes an appreciation for each others events, and makes the TEAM stronger.

 The distance runners also benefit from the 400m Time Trial, by learning their maximum quarter speed. With the knowledge of their maximum quarter speed, the coaching staff is able to provide proper racing strategy for the 800m run.

 Athletes will meet at the MAIN ENTRANCE of Northside College Prep at 7:45 am before going to the Indoor Stadium at North Park University. The Indoor Stadium is located on the corner of Kedzie and Carmen ave. Thanks.
