>Look What I Can Do!>Son's Track Meet
The 5K was run in CT and at State competition up to 5 years ago when my son graduated (and at least 5 years previous to that as we knew another runner from his school who ran it). Our son qualified and ran the 5K all four years at the State Competition. Some schools did not have the 5K, such as Farmington high School, they instead had the 4X800. Other schools did not do the 4X800 but had the 5K and a few did both. At the State Competition, then ran both the 5K and the 4X800 for the boys.
However they were making an effort to eliminate the 5K 5 years ago. So I just went and checked, because it's the time of year for States and found out that one of the four divisions was run yesterday and there was no 5K. Here is the website http://www.plattsys.com/results/res2008/cscout.htm
Slosh252, out of curiosity, where did you go to school?

I'm quoting to myself! (before I have to eat crow)
After searching back through some old records, maybe I am mistaken and that my son ran the 3200 at States and not the 5K. I'll check with him tonight to clarify it, but I do know that at his high Schol and in the Berkshire Leaque, they ran the 5K and left out the 4X800 except at the leaque championship.
