Apollo High School Invitational
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the Apollo High School Invitational for the first time in over a decade. This event will one of the best and last chances to drop a fast time during the regular season. This event will be hosted at our brand new state-of-the-art Track and Field facility. We will be contesting all events, including the freshman mile. The meet will be professionally timed by MidSouth Timing company.
Our beautiful blue 8-laned rubberized track will provide all athletes the opportunity to run blazing fast times, during the last weekend of the regular season. Our hurdles, starting blocks, throws area, and both the high jump and vault pits not only meet all high school standards but also all NCAA standards.
For the friends and families of the athletes sitting in the stands, all running AND field events can easily be seen from the home bleachers. Not only can spectators watch each event from the home bleachers they can also track the progress of each field event athlete as we have performance boards for each field event.
