04/15/16 – Clarification on Middle School Participation

April 15, 2016 Middle School Blog Updates and Information


Our office has had inquiries about participation in postseason competition for Track & Field by student-athletes in the 6th grade that were on the official grandfathered list as having participated in varsity competition prior to 2014-15 when changes in 702 KAR 7:065.

Per 702 KAR 7:065, any student that has participated at the high school level prior to the 2014-2015 school year is eligible to participate in the postseason. Any current 6th grade student-athlete that was placed on the grandfathered list in prior years and appears on the school roster is eligible to compete at both the region and the state level. If you have any additional questions, please contact Sarah Bridenbaugh ( at the KHSAA office.
