The Midwest's best high-school track & field athletes will return to Ohio State's French Field House for the third-annual Arnold Track & Field Championships.
Nearly 1,200 athletes from 75 Ohio high school track teams competed last year in 17 different events. This year’s event will be held Saturday, March 2.
“We will showcase many of the reigning Ohio high school state champions in track and field,” Co-Chair Lori Baldwin said. “We also expect to have participants from Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan and West Virginia.”
A $2,000 scholarship will be presented by the Columbus Rotary and the Arnold Sports Festival. Last year, Natalie Uy from Kettering Fairmont High School in Ohio won the scholarship. She plans to compate again this year.
