Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

09/27/19 – Postseason Track & Field Sites and Dates

September 27, 2019 Track and Field Blog Updates


As you plan for spring events in 2020, we would like to remind schools about the Track & Field postseason dates. Please make sure all parties involved in planning graduation dates, spring activities, etc. are aware of the postseason dates which should help fans, coaches and administrators avoid scheduling conflicts. 

For 2020, regional track meets can be held from May 18 to May 30. However, due to the University of Kentucky hosting the SEC regional track meet on the weekend of May 30th, it is strongly suggested that regional host schools avoid the dates of May 28-30 as it will be difficult to find officials and timers for regionals. 

As regions begin preparation, please remember that all scheduling is led by the regional host, but discussions and planning should include all schools involved. If a region or group of schools desire to start regional competition on the prior weekend (May 15-16), please ensure that all schools are in agreement and contact the KHSAA staff for consent.

The KHSAA State Track & Field Meet will return to the University of Kentucky on June 4-6, 2020. Class 1A will compete on June 4, followed by Class 2A on June 5, and Class 3A on June 6.
