2019 Arkansas High School Track and Field
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:52:00 am »
I guess we can start a new one. Been a few years since we had a big dog thread going.  Hoping some oldtimers along with some young pups come on board to bring back good conversation, info, stats, and to help grow a great sport!   Here is to 2019 being a great year!

Also, unless they got a track recently that I do not know about is Green Forest hosting at Eureka's track? If so I probably will attend that meet. I know GF used to do that in the past, but I did not know if they have their own track yet?

Why is 5A/6A combined? Will they have separate races? One overall winner or one winner for each class?

It's always been this way just for indoor.... I do not like how they split the new format.... With 4A gaining 16 larger schools from compared to the last decade the 1A and 2A schools have no business running with some of these 4A schools. Also, the old 1A-4A meet took entirely too long and will only be longer with the addition of 16 programs. I hope they start this an hour or 2 earlier if any AAA people have the slightest bit of intelligence.


As for 5A and 6A this makes it more competitive actually from previous years where 5A-7A ran together. This in fact takes those sixteen smallest 5A schools from previous years I just talked about, and now instead of them running with 7A schools they get to run against 1A and 2A schools cause they are 4A now instead of 5A cause the restructure this cycle. Rattler will tell you this took what already was an uphill battle for small schools and made it even harder adding them into the 1A-4A mix


Trackster and Rattler can also attest outside of the 7A big dogs in a certain area(let's say the Bentonville and Fayetteville distance guys just as one example) . That 5A and 6A is pretty competitive in the middle of the pack and will be fun to watch. Those 5A guys will hang just fine outside of the couple really, dominant folks from 6A


As of right now indoor is 1A-4A(gag) and 5A/6A.... 1A-4A run together and 5A/6A together

I don't think 5a &6a are combined....Lake Hamilton just somehow wrangled both meets(is that the right wording? Never followed track, or even posted on this board until that earlier post haha)

Well I feel like a dummy cause I thought he was talking about indoor. Had I done what normal people do and just read above that LH is hosting 5A and 6A for outdoor then I would have seen what he was talking about.


Outdoor should be separate for 5A and 6A cause they have never combined classifications for outdoor, but I am still grumpy about how they split indoor so my rant doesn't change there  ;D


If they did combine 5A and 6A that would be something cause it has not be done before and seems unnecessary. I understand the indoors combined cause they use the U of A track and that's a special ordeal, but outdoor would be whole new territory if they did.

Maybe they were willing to don't cause between the 2 classes they're still not bigger than the smaller ones? 🤷 Who knows...LoL...Lake Hamilton wasnt the only one to bid on 6a...I forget who the other two were
