The 2019 "Pre-State" Meet will be on September 28, 2019 at the new Gans Creek Course in Columbia MO. The meet will be officially called the "Gans Creek Classic". Specific information will come out today via email as pushed forward by MSHSAA. Included in the email will be a google form "soft commitment" as we begin the process of finalizing certain aspects of the meet. There will be 2 male varsity races / 2 female varsity races / and 1 junior varsity race for males /1 jv race for females. Divisions will be determined by either school size, competitive level, and/or preference. The soft commitment will help us determine if we want to go towards the Forest Park model, or the pre-state model in the past. All races will be 5000 meters. The hope is to offer an event that parallels the state meet as much as possible, as well as an extremely competitive meet in the process.

Did the email with information get sent out? I've yet to receive an email and want to make sure that we are part of the "soft commitment."

This was the date I set for the First Annual North Callaway Invitational. I will be looking for a new date for our meet. Not a big deal...but if you planned on coming to our place on the 28th, I won't be there.

This is also the date for our 13th annual Hermitage Invite. At this time we will not be changing dates for our event. If you feel the "Pre-State" meet is not right for your school, then you are more than welcome at our event.
