Meet Information

JUMPSTART YOUR SEASON AT THE
CATBIRD CLASSIC

Anyone looking for a Cross Country meet in Southeastern Kentucky the first week of the season?
North Laurel and South Laurel High School will be hosting a cross country meet on Saturday, September 2nd on the North Laurel High School campus. It is a demanding course but will be a good challenge for runners early in the season. For teams who have not been here in a while, the course has been redesigned and runners and spectators both enjoy the changes. The North Laurel Invitational and Area 8 Championships will still be run on Saturday, September 30th.

Hy-tek rosters due by Tuesday, August 30th at 5 p.m. EST. The Hy-tek operator will be Chris Butcher. You can send entries to him at chris_butcher2@mymail.eku.edu (that is an underscore between the s and the b). Chris contact phone number is 859-893-1414. Please contact Rachel Gaynor at rachel.gaynor@laurel.kyschools.us if you plan on bringing a team or teams.

Entry fees will be charge but at a very minimal rate. The charge will be $60.00 per school no matter how many teams or runners you bring. If you do not have 12 runners total, then the charge is $5.00 per runner. The meet will be limited to 15 schools in each division.
