February 14th, 2015 (Following the Division 1 Invitational)
SPIRE is hosting an ELITE HS Showcase meet that is designed to give the top athletes in the state of OHIO and surrounding region and Canada a chance to compete against each other in front of many NCAA Division 1 College coaches. The Track facility houses a 300m 8-lane Beynon 3000 surfaced track with a 10 lane sprint straight. In previous editions of this meet, USA HS #1 performances have come in the Girls 200m, 800m,1600m, and the Girls 4x4, the Boys 400m and Weight Throw. Many national qualifiers and other excellent times have been run on this extremely fast track. We will also utilize dual PV runways and pits in this meet in order to better Showcase those competing athletes.
Meet is OPEN to High School age students only! (Ages 13-19)
