It looks like the state meet is on the KHSAA calendar for May 23-24th. This appears to give us 1 extra week in the season next year. It gives 2 weekends in May before regionals.

Hmm... Seems like there are 2 different dates out there: [url=Corresponding dates]http://khsaa.org/handbook/correspondingdates/trackcorrespondingdates.pdf[/url] [url=KHSAA Calendar]http://khsaa.org/general/calendar/[/url] The KHSAA Calendar says the 23-24th, but the corresponding dates says 16-17. The everwise @official thinks that it will stay with May 16-17, but I guess I can dream ;)

@theMike I am not always right. There may be a directive coming out tomorrow that will probably prove me wrong. Stay tuned!!

@theMike Sorry, there's no way we'll get that extra week. Delaying the State Meet would interfere with those standardized tests that don't yet exist and nobody seems to know about. The good news for AP students is that AP testing will still occur during Regional Meet week. As we all know, while nonexistant tests may conflict with post-season events, existing tests like the AP exams apparently do not. ;-)

@theMike Wow, I thought I'd be able to fart silver dollars before the State Meet ever crept back to a later date again. Glad to say I was wrong. Yay KHSAA!

So, does this mean the Middle School State Meet will move one week out as well?

I assume MS State would then go back to two weeks earlier.

@jonathan Options would be May 10 or May 31. May 10 cuts the season almost in half.

@official I kind of like May 10th. We are pretty much done on the Western end of the state by then anyway. Our last meet is usually Henderson's meet that first weekend in May. Not sure how many people really go past that.

@Toggle The issue in the middle of the state is that many of the MS programs don't start till April 1st so May 10th would result in a 5-6 week long season. Maybe my kids are extra dense but it takes about 5-6 weeks before they can get out of the starting blocks correctly forget running a full race.
