On behalf of Owensboro High School, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your team to the 3rd annual Kentucky-Indiana Border Clash to be held on August 27th, 2013 at Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, KY. Our vision in planning and establishing this meet is simple: Kentucky and Indiana both have a long tradition of great teams/individuals that rarely race each other...we want to have an early season meet to bring them all together for a great competition! We feel this meet will be very competitive and loads of fun for your athletes. We hope that you will consider participating.

The KY-IN Border Clash will be scored with normal cross-country scoring to determine an overall team champion. The top five runners from each team score with the sixth runner to determine any tie-breakers.
Medals will be awarded to the top fifteen runners in each race. Plaques will awarded to the overall champion and team champion.
"TOP RUNNER" SINGLETS AND STARTING BOX
As part of each teams entry fee, each of your number one runners will wear either a red singlet or blue singlet with your school logo on it. Kentucky runners will wear blue with Indiana wearing red. Each state will have a "Number One Runner" starting box. All number one runners will start in this box separate from their teams. The idea behind this is to allow each team/states best runners to be honored, visible and start together. NOTE: all runners are eligible to score for their respective state regardless of whether they are designated in the "Number One Runner" singlet or note.
Concessions and KY-IN Border Clash t-shirts will be available for purchase for all athletes, coaches and spectators.
At this time, there will be no admission fee for spectators to enter Yellow Creek Park for the KY-IN Border Clash. If this changes, we will notify you via email the week of the meet.
A certified athletic trainer will be on site before and during the meet for any needs that may arise.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON AUGUST 27th!
