   The 48th Annual Cosmopolitan Invitational Track and Field Meet got underway Thursday at William Fleming High School.  The track meet, which is officially sanctioned by the Virginia High School League, has become the largest scholastic track meet in Southwest Virginia with boys' and girls' teams participating from Middle, Junior and Senior High Schools throughout our area.  Cosmo 2013 will include athletes from 35 area schools this year with a total expected participation of approximately 1,300 students.

  The Meet is in its second year back where it began.  The First Annual Cosmopolitan Invitational Track & Field Meet was held on Saturday, May 7, 1966 at William Fleming High School.  There were 4 schools in the field: Addison High School, Jefferson High School, Patrick Henry High School and William Fleming High School.  The Meet attracted 115 boys for 15 events and was won by William Fleming.

 The Cosmopolitan Club of Roanoke will award $3000.00 scholarships to an outstanding senior boy and girl participating in this year's meet.  Since 2000, the Club has awarded $50,000 in scholarships.

  Cosmo 2013 gets underway at 3:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon with Middle School Track & Field events.  Junior and Senior Division track and field events will be held at William Fleming on Friday afternoon beginning at 3:00 p.m.  Competition resumes at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning at Fleming when the Senior field events begin.  Track events finals for Middle Schools and Junior & Senior Divisions will begin at 11:30 a.m.  Pole Vault competition will return to Roanoke with the Junior events Friday and Senior Events held Saturday at Fleming.

 The Parade of Athletes marches at 11:00 a.m. Saturday followed by running events for all scholastic divisions.  Phillip Clements, a multi-medal Meet winner and a past track star at Staunton River, will be the Grand Marshall this year

 Closing Award Ceremonies are expected to conclude by 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

 Admission is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for students.  There is no charge for preschoolers and parking is free.
