The track & field season is heating up
The Ohio High School Athletic Association Track & Field Championships will return to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at The Ohio State University June 3-4. Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium last hosted the track and field state championships in 2019. In 2020, spring sports were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Westerville North, Pickerington North and Hilliard Darby high schools hosted the state meet in 2021 with some COVID-19 restrictions still in place. It is a one-year agreement with OSU to host the track & field state championships this year.  For more information on this year’s Championships - https://www.ohsaa.org/Sports-Tournaments/Track-Field/2022-State-Tournament-Coverage I hope to see you at the OHSAA State Track & Field State Championships or another race this Spring.
Track & Field
Track & Field is one of the oldest sport known to mankind. Track & Field is one of the most diverse 
sports as there are 17 different events for high school athletes and 20 for collegiate athletes to challenge themselves. According to The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) girl’s track & field is the largest participatory sport for high school girls and track & field is the second largest participatory
sport for boys. With the popularity and diversity of Track & Field why have some many Mid American Conference schools and other NCAA Division I universities dropped Men’s Track & Field.
