Highlights from 2016
• Always a highlight the 3200m was ridiculous with Andrew Jordan of Watkins Memorial (OH) throwing down a national leader of 8:46, with Gavin Gaynor of Hudson (OH) running 8:50! Super Soph Brodey Hasty laid down a 9:01 the fastest 10th grade mark in the country of 2016. There were 7 under 9:10, 16 under 9:20, 23 under 9:30, and 69 under 10. Could 2017 be the year where we get 100 under 10:00?

• The girls 3200m was won by Brentwood's (TN) Hailey Hendry in 10:34. She was followed closely by LexCath (KY) junior Michaela Reinhart in 10:37. With 7 girls under 11, 14 under 11:20, and 45 under 12 it proved to be one of the deepest field in the middle of the country.

Taliyah Townsend of Male (KY) won the 100/200 double running 12.26/25.12 a Meet Record in the 100m.

• Despite rainy conditions MiAngel Daniels of Gahanna Lincoln (OH) laid down a 14.37/43.86 hurdle double.

• The boy's hurdles saw two great hurdlers trade victories with both setting meet records in the process. Brentwood Academy's (TN) dynamic George Patrick, one of the World's best young multi-eventers, won the 110H in 14.10. Isaiah McCall Bryan Station (KY) came back in the 300H to run 37.73.

• All American Will Allen Paul Dunbar (KY) ran 47.80 to win the 400m going away.

• Tactical boy's mile saw 4 runners finish between 4:16.67 and 4:18.52. Tippecanoe's (OH) Mitchell Poynter came out on top over Brennan Fields (KY), Connor Peeples (NC), and Yared Nuguse (KY).

Terrell Jackson of Memphis University School (TN) went on the win a crazy race at the the Brooks PR Invite 800m but in Louisville he ran away with the boys 800m running 1:51.75.

Alexis Gibbons of Butler (KY) went 18-11.75 in the LJ and Lily Bunse of Kings (OH) vaulted 12'.

• Junior Ben Ewert of Beaver Creek (OH) went on to win the steeple at USATF National Junior Olympics and run the nation's fastest time ran his first steeple of the year in 6:07.32 to set an Eastern Relays Record

Sanctioning
We typically proactively complete the sanctioning process for IN, OH, IL, MO, WV, and TN. Any schools from additional states wishing to participate should communicate early so you can also be included. Last year Indiana's sanction required that they be scored in a separate division so they were ineligible for team awards.

Awards
Awards for First, Second, and Third Overall Team. Awards for the top 8 finishers in each individual event.
Awards for the top 3 relays in each relay event. Scoring: 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for all events

Entry deadline
Online entries should be received by Monday April 17th, 2017. Any entries received after the deadline will be charged an additional $25 fee and may not be accepted at all. All athletes (including relay legs) are assigned a unique competitor number. There will be a $5 fee for athletes that lose their bib numbers or that are not included in the entries and need to be assigned a competitor number/bib on meet day.

Track Events: All track events are timed finals.

Field Events: Shot put, discus, long jump, and triple jump will be contested with 3 jumps/throws, with the top 9 athletes advancing to finals. During the preliminary round, all marks will be measured in the first round. During the subsequent rounds only marks that exceed the entry standard will be measured.

Pole Vault, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Shot Put, and Discus will contest an open section (no awards, non-scoring) on Friday night with the Invitational sections on Saturday. All field events, both open and invitational require a qualifying mark.
For the High Jump and Pole Vault the starting height will be the entry standard. Depending on field size we may utilize 5-Alive or multiple pits broken up by entry height.

Hotel Accommodations: Coaches are advised that there is a large convention in town this weekend and it would be wise to seek hotel reservations early. You will likely find no rooms available near the track as the convention is at the nearby Fair and Expo center. I apologize for the inconvenience but wanted to spread the word.
