59th annual Rotary Meet at Filstrup Field Friday

The 59th annual St. Joseph-Benton Harbor Rotary Track Meet will be at Filstrup Field Friday.

The best track athletes from around southwest Michigan will participate in the meet, which will begin with field events and preliminaries at 4:30 p.m.

The finals are scheduled to begin at  6 p.m.

Brandywine, Cassopolis, Dowagiac and Niles are all scheduled to compete in the meet, which is one of the largest in Michigan.

It features athletes from more than 30 schools in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren counties.

Along with the meet, a pair of Berrien County athletes will be presented scholarships, a tradition that dates back to the late 1970s.

Last year, Niles’ Connor Amberg and Brandywine’s Andrew Duckett had big nights as both won three events.

Admission is $5 per person.
