Off and running to regionals
With the exception of football, cross country is the last of the fall sports still going. Regional meets are Saturday, and while there probably won’t be any local team champions, a number of athletes from seven area schools will likely qualify for the state meet.
All of this year’s regional meets are out of town. Here’s the schedule:
- Class A, Region 4 (Burgin, Danville): 10 a.m. at Easy Walker Park, Mount Sterling.
- Class AA, Region 4 (Boyle County, Casey County, Mercer County): 10:30 a.m. at Asbury College, Wilmore.
- Class AAA, Region 6 (Lincoln County): 10 a.m. Saturday at North Laurel.
The state meet is Nov. 10 at its usual venue, the Kentucky Horse Park just north of Lexington — though it may not be there much longer thanks to the World Equestrian Games. The first Class A race is at 9:30 a.m., Class AA begins at 11:30 a.m. and Class AAA begins at 1:30 p.m.
