All Laurel County students in grades K-6 have an opportunity to compete for their school in cross country meets this August. The meets will be held at Bush Elementary School starting at 6 p.m. on the following Friday evenings — Aug. 10th, 17th and 24th. A county championship meet will take place on Thursday, Aug. 30 due to the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Athletes competing in the first three meets will have the opportunity to receive ribbons for first through 15th places.
Since the Aug. 30th race will be the county championship meet, individual medals for first through third place will be awarded at that meet only. Students who want to participate must provide the completed waiver on the night of each race. There will be a $2 charge per participant and no admission charge for spectators. Concessions will be available.
Divisions and distances of the races to be contested at the meets (boys and girls will be ran together).
For more information about this event, contact Rachel Gaynor at 862-4699 or Carrie Kirby at 862-4727.
