  • Percy Knox Invitational 2010

    Saturday March 27th 2010 we will be making history with the six annual Percy Knox Invitational Track and Field Meet. In order to raise awareness to high school track and field, we will be hosting a halftime show featuring: Montell Jordan (This is how we do it), Johnny Kemp (Just got paid), The Sisters Sledge (We are family) and Johnny Gill (My, My, My,). No one has ever attempted a feat of such magnitude in massing together a line up of entertainment for a high school track and field meet.

    Our goal is to have the stands filled with spectators for the concert but staying over for the invitational track meet. Back in the sixties and seventies there would be crowds of thousands to witness a high school track meet of this enormity. Imagine the rush our kids will experience having over five thousand spectators cheering them down the home stretch.

    Somewhere along the way, we lost the parental and spectator support; this is the best of the best when it comes to high school track and field competition. Some of you may remember the Sunkist Games at the Sports Area or the Fresno Invitational in Fresno California; both these events attracted thousands and thousand of spectators but are now dead and gone.

    There will be kids competing in this event from all over the state of California; from San Francisco to San Diego, and a few schools from neighboring states. You will witness first hand some of our future Olympians contending for the rights to call themselves the best.

    Over the years California has produced more track and field Olympians than any other state in the union. Some of our more notable Olympians like: Florence Griffith Joyner (Jordan H.S), Valerie Brisco (Locke H.S.), Quincy Watts (Taft H.S.), Johnny Gray (Crenshaw H.S.), Gail Devers (Sweetwater H.S. San Diego), Denean and Sherri Howard ( Kennedy H.S.), and Allyson Felix (LA Baptist H.S.) are just to a few names that all started out running in high school meets similar in caliper of competition.

    Proceeds raised from this meet will be used to help less fortunate schools with their track and field programs.

    Show your support by pledging to purchase a ticket(s) to attend this historical event. Three events, one low price, one awesome day. Percy Knox Day Meet 9am – 2:30pm, Concert 3pm-4:30pm, and the Percy Knox Invitational 5pm-8pm.
