DERBY MIDDLE SCHOOL INVITATIONAL
We are disappointed to announce that this year's Derby MS Invitational is cancelled. If an alternative date arises later in the season, then we will consider running the meet at that point, but at this point, this is a cancellation.

Hosted by Assumption High School Track & Field (Louisville, KY)
We welcome this year's participants to compete in two afternoons of exciting MS Track & Field action, with an opportunity to compete under the lights in one of our signature events. The meet consists of Elite level competition in a wide number of events, and an additional Open section for teams to run what amounts to their second group of athletes.
