Junior Olympians raced for Region 4 titles at Apalachee Regional Park Cross-Country CourseHerb Wills, November 23, 2019
I’m guessing that because USATF Region 4 includes three states–South
Carolina, Georgia, and Florida–the Region 4 Junior Olympic
Cross-Country championship is only in Florida once every three years,
and between times Georgia and South Carolina get their turns. The meet
was at Apalachee Regional Park in 2016. If I’m right, that’s why the
Championships returned to Florida this year. Whether or not the theory
holds, the USATF Region 4 Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championship
Meet was at Apalachee Regional Park again this past Saturday, 23
November 2019, and here is a little bit about what happened:
