08/05/13 XC and Track Regional Sites Selected

August 6, 2013 Athletic Department Blog Updates

With the new track and field alignment comes additional changes.  As schools know all postseason sites are set by the KHSAA for all sports.  The new alignment gave the KHSAA an opportunity to coordinate the post season assignments differently than in the past for both Cross Country and Track and Field.

A concern for all schools has been the facilities and courses.  Those concerns range from equipment such as pole vault and discuss venues, to timing equipment and appropriate amount of parking.  Another important aspect of hosting is the experience of meet management and the ability to provide an adequate number of workers and volunteers to make a meet successful.  Providing the top officials to ensure the absolute best experience possible for the student athletes in our communities is also a goal.

To address these issues, the KHSAA has designated the host schools for both Cross Country and Track and Field for the next two years. As you will see the KHSAA has combine multiple classes to the same sites. This will add a level of excitement for the schools participating, but will be added work on the host schools.  It will be imperative that all schools join in and assist the host school to provided volunteers.  It will also be necessary for all schools to be organized with their team information and entries. The listing can be found at the link below:

We are currently working on specifications and an application form to be submitted to this office for schools to request to host.  Once the form is ready, it will be posted on the KHSAA website and notification will be sent to the schools.
