GRC Heavy Metal Throwdown Invitational
George Rogers Clark (GRC) in partnership with Transylvania University will be hosting a high school track meet on Saturday April 8, in Lexington Ky at Transylvania University. We hope to make this a first rate invitational on Transylvania’s new outdoor track. Please mark your calendars and attend this meet. We will also highlight a section of our sport that sometimes is over looked that being the throwing events.
Last year we had numerous State and Regional Champions participated in the meet in a multitude of events which have lead to many meet records that could stand for years to come. But who’s to say more won’t be set this year.
Transylvania’s Athletics Complex features an 860-seat grandstand, an eight-lane track, and an artificial turf field. Concessions, T-shirt sales and public Restrooms will also be available.
$3.00 Students and Children
The Athletic Complex address is 555 West 4th Street, Lexington KY 40508.
The meet will start at 10:00 am.
Coaches meeting at 9:30 am at the same time the track will open for warm ups at the finish line.
Timing will be FAT.
