01/28/16 – Swimming and Diving Region 8 Meet Location Change

January 28, 2016 Swimming Blog Updates

Due to the expansion of regions from five to nine for the 2015-2016 Swimming and Diving season, plans were made for the Region 8 Swim Meet to be held at the Falling Springs Arts and Recreation Center in Versailles to decrease the amount of travel for schools in this region.

Several schools in this region had expressed a strong interest in returning to the Stivers Wellness and Aquatic Center in Barbourville, KY for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet. The KHSAA sent a survey to the Designated Representatives from each school in this region asking them to consult their head coaches in regards to which facility they wanted to serve as the host for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet.

The overwhelming majority of administrators (19-4) voted for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet to return to the Stivers Aquatic and Wellness Center. As a result, the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet will be conducted at the Stivers Wellness and Aquatic Center. The diving portion of the Region 8 meet will remain at the Falling Springs Arts and Recreation Center in Versailles.

The Regional host school will be Lexington Catholic High School with Brad Carter serving as manager. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have. Thanks.
