  • Researcg: Oldest High School Only Track Invitational

    I am doing research to find out what the oldest high school only track and field invitational is. This is meets that are high school only, no university or post-collegiate events like Penn (108), Drake (est. 1910), or Texas (76 yrs old). BYU's high school meet (est. 1911) takes claim of this but I believe they have university events in the meet so they would not really get the title. Golden West (est. 1960)claims to be the oldest high school championship meet but I don't know how they define championship meet. Southwest Missouri State has a high school only invitational that is going on 80 years this spring. I think this may be the oldest meet with only high school competition. Any help?

    Back in the late 50's, there was an invitatoional meet in New Jersey called the Englewood Invitational. (Site of John Mostyn's 1958( ? ) 100 yard "9.3" that turned out to be only 95 yards)

    Have no idea if that meet is still up and running or how old it was back then.
