THE JOHN STRICKLAND SPEED MEETThe meet was designed by by the late Coach John Strickland. He was a dedicated coach for more than 15 years and enjoyed hosting this meet. In his honor, we have decided to name the meet after him and maintain the "Speed Meet" format.Region is right around the corner; coaches and athletes want to get the best times & measurements to prepare and rank. This is a fun meet and it allows the athlete to leave it all on the track without having to worry about being tired or worn out from competing in multiple events. It also allows for an unlimited amount of entries per event per school.
The meet entries are limited to 1 individual event and only 1 relay per athlete. For example, if John does the triple jump for his individual event he can not do the 100 meter dash. The only other event he is allowed to compete in is a relay. Athletes will be rejected from the 2nd, 3rd, and/or 4th individual events.
The following list is comprised of teams that participated in the past: Fayette County, Whitewater, Sandy Creek, Douglas County, Creekside, Griffin, Lovejoy, Charles Drew, Langston Hughes, Fredric Douglas, Tri-Cities and Mundy's Mill.
