Coaches-
On behalf of Owensboro High School, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your team to the 7th annual Kentucky-Indiana Border Clash to be held on August 22nd, 2017 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. This race will be chip timed by 40LB sledgehammer Productions out of Newburgh, IN. They will provide instantaneous printed results for all coaches. We are also expanding AWARDS for this years race!

Please see the next page for entry guidelines and complete meet information. If you have any other questions, please email Summer Bell at Summer.bell@owensboro.kyschools.us .

God Bless,
