The event, which is open to athletes of any sport entering grades 9 through 12 as well as graduating seniors, includes several classic combine drills. Registration costs $15 and must becompleted by May 1.
Competitions include the 40-yard dash, 3-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump, broad jump, bench press and squats. Following the competition, individual event as well as ‘all school’ champions will be named.
“We’re very excited about this event because it gives our athletes another opportunity to compete and improve their skills,” Brett Lacy, Community Relations Coordinator for SOMC’s Outpatient Rehab, said. “We have tremendous athletes in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Not only does this give them a chance to work on their abilities, it’s also another opportunity for some friendly competition between the athletes and their schools.”
Athletes are asked to wear t-shirts, gym shorts and flat sole tennis shoes to the event. For certain events, cleats may also be worn. Official results will be mailed to the athletes’ home after the event. The public is also encouraged to attend and cheer on the athletes.
