This will be the first non-invitational type track and field meet on a 200 meter track in Kentucky high school history. It will also be the first 5-Way Border Battle indoor track and field meet in Kentucky high school history. This 5-Way Border Battle will feature Team Shelby (Collins and Shelby Co.), Team Oldham (North and South), Team Fayette (Lafayette and Tates Creek), Team Bourbon (Paris and Bourbon Co.), and Team Boyle (Danville and Boyle Co.). It will also be the first high school meet held on Centre College's new 200 meter indoor track!
One of our objectives at Martha Layne Collins High School is to put the Oomph! back into Track & Field. So, for the first time we will host an early season indoor Border Battle. We are separating the field events from the running events. This will make it better for the athletes, coaches, and spectators by allowing them to focus more with less going on. We will have a mix of traditional high school distances (e.g., 1600 & 3200) as well as some indoor event distances (i.e., 300, 600, and 1000). In 2025, we might even add the weight throw.
This meet will be the KYMileSplit LiveStream Meet of the Week!
Entries: Teams may enter three athletes in the running and field events, and one scoring relay team in the relays. Athletes may not compete in more than four total events (including relays). Entries are due by 1/22/24 at 11:59 PM. Note in the throws and horizontal field events, the Meet Director reserves the right to implement a "minimum mark" based on the number of competitors. If a minimum mark is implemented, then all athletes will have one fair trial marked and all others must meet the minimum.
Admission: $6 per person, children 10 and under free. Admission will only be online through the GO Fan application: TBD. Tickets must be purchased in advance. There will be no cash sales the day of. Tickets will be available at the link above until 2:30 PM on 1/27/24.
Concessions: A concession stand will be open.
Details: This will be the second meet and the first high school meet on Centre College's new 200 meter indoor track on the Centre campus in Danville. Spikes will be checked at the clerking check in. One quarter inch (1/4 ") maximum pyramid spikes only (i.e., no "needle" or "Christmas Tree" spikes). We are planning to have a certified official run each field event.
