09/21/13 – Where to send XC and Track Results

Athletic Department Blog Updates

Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, both Cross Country and Track and Field results will be tracked and accessed through the http://ky.milesplit.com/ website.  The website is free for all schools and is a great way to track your student athletes’ results throughout the season.

All results are mandatory to be submitted to Jonathan Grooms via email at jonathan@kytrackxc.com or kytrackxc@gmail.com in flat html format from Hytek.  If not in Hytek, an Excel Spreadsheet would be the preferred method.  Only those results submitted will be considered for eligibility for the postseason by the KHSAA.  Please get results to Jonathan in a timely manner (within a few days of your event) and in the format that he has requested above.

The website has many other free features.  Coaches can claim their team and athletes. This feature will allow coaches to easily track their athletes progress throughout the season(s).  Again, there is no charge for this portion of the […]

07/23/13 – New Track/XC Alignment Approved; Football Draft Alignments; Tackett Receives New 4-Year Contract

2013-2014 News Releases

New Track/XC Alignment Approved; Football Draft Alignments To Begin; Commissioner Receives Extremely Favorable Evaluation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JULY 23, 2013

The Board of Control conducted its July meeting on Monday at the Bank of Kentucky Center on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. Among the various topics addressed was the finalizing of a new alignment for Track and Field/Cross Country for the upcoming 2013-14 season.

Following months of review, a survey of the member schools, and consideration of all of the suggested amendments, the Board of Control adopted a revised alignment for Track & Field/Cross Country to take effect for postseason competition in the fall of 2013. Originally, a draft alignment was developed which would have minimized differences in enrollment between the largest and smallest schools in Class 1A and Class 3A. However, the feedback from the membership was more favorable to the current system […]

05/08/13 – Original Draft Alignment for Track and Cross Country

Cross Country Blog Updates

**NOTE** THIS POST IS LOGGED FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES, BUT THE ALIGNMENT NOTED IN THIS POST WAS NOT ADOPTED.

The new proposed alignment for Track and Field, which was last aligned in 2008-09, places approximately 35% of schools in Class 1A, 40% of schools in Class 2A, and the top 25% of schools in Class 3A based on enrollment figures. The new alignment was created with the aim that larger schools have an inherently higher probability of having multiple athletes in different events and should compete more among themselves (as in football), but also recognizes that many of the smaller schools do not field a full team and would not necessarily need to have as few schools in Class 1A. Documentation on the complete realignment is available on the Track and Field page at KHSAA.org. There was also recognition that trying to control travel was of primary concern, even if regions end […]
