08/29/14 – Track Corresponding Dates

August 29, 2014 Track and Field Blog Updates

We have had a few inquiries about the dates for postseason track. Last season the board approved a two week period for regionals to be held due to a change in the NFHS calendar and a scheduling issue with the state host facility.

We will again schedule a two week period to complete the regional competition. The two week period seemed to be beneficial to schools for many reasons, but mostly the benefit of scheduling around May school scheduling conflicts was expressed.  It also allowed schools to be more confident with rescheduling due to weather related issues.

Please take a look at the corresonding dates calendar from the KHSAA handbook posted on the khsaa.org website – http://khsaa.org/handbook/correspondingdates/trackcorrespondingdates.pdf

The last asterisk denotes the two weeks possible for track regional competition.  

There will no longer be a waiver to run a meet once the regional meet has run.
