50th Anniversary

—1944 - 1994 —

Nationally known as one of Texas' best track and field events. The first invitational was held April 1, 1944 at Odessa High School's dirt practice field. Seven area high schools competed in 14 events. In 1949 the meet moved to a new cinder track at Broncho (W.T. Barrett) Stadium and was re-named The West Texas Relays. That year the Odessa Camber of Commerce joined the school system as co-sponsor. Competition expanded to include athletes from area junior and senior highs, state and national junior colleges and universities. In 1983 the relays moved to Ratliff Stadium's faster all-weather track. Over 1500 competitors from about 50 schools now participate in the annual two-day meet.
