Bluegrass Invitational HS Recap: Baugh 15:22, Reinhart 18:44 on a True 5K Course Jonathan Grooms Sep 13, 2014

In only its second year of existence, the Bluegrass Cross Country invitational has already earned a reputation. Notable for fast times, strong competition, and hotly debated validity (more on that in a minute) this was a meet I’ve had on my coverage radar for some time. Last year’s meet saw a battle down to the wire between John Spencer of Lafayette and Eric Baugh of Villa Madonna with both PRing in the mid-to-low 15’s. This year was hoping to produce more of the same, adding several more to the “sub-16” club. To ensure legitimacy of the course Coach Hawboldt of Tates Creek confirmed that no less than 3 separate entities measured the course: The University of Kentucky, Lindburgh High School (St. Louis MO), and himself. Each gave measurements within 1% accuracy of 5000m.

Henry Clay/Tanner Duke Recap: 1st Timer Cole Wins Boys Race, Reinhart Takes Girls Title Tyler Karnes Aug 31, 2014

 Henry Clay has hosted the kickoff meet for the Lexington area for several years now, but this year’s meet ran to a more somber tone. Last January, a member of the Henry Clay cross country team, Tanner Duke, tragically passed away. In honor of his memory, this year’s meet was named the Henry Clay/Tanner Duke Invitational. As cross country season begins I cannot imagine how difficult of a time this must be for the Duke family. So as you read this, take a moment to stop and give a moment of your thoughts and/or prayers to Tanner Duke and his family.

For the second time in a month I found myself at Masterson Station for another meet hosted by Tates Creek. Although it was later in the year this time around, the weather was a bit warmer and the conditions not as optimal as it was for the Bluegrass Invitational. Coming into today, there were key match-ups on both the guys and girls side of racing. Here’s how they played out:

Movers and Shakers: Fall Break Edition Jonathan Grooms Oct 9, 2012

  This past weekend was strange, there were a ton of meets but nothing was really huge.  There were some quality match-ups but even that was hard to decipher as many schools were missing runners.  Fall break is part of it, minor injuries, and just simply being tired from all the racing over the last seven weeks.  Here are some of the things that stuck out to me from this past week.

The first Lexington invitational is ready to roll on Saturday at Masterson Station Park.  The Henry Clay Invitational is going to have teams mainly from the Lexington area in the first of many competitions between the schools this season.

What a meet. In my opinion this has to be the best meet so far this season from a talent stand point. As you read, remember all schools were coming off of spring break or were currently on spring break, so all top efforts need to be praised. In addition, the meet was held under cloudy skies with fallen temperatures as the day progressed.
