Boys Track: Madden and Hayes Qualify for Kentucky Dream Mile

Boys Track: Madden and Hayes Qualify for Kentucky Dream Mile

From Assistant Track and Field Coach Ray Hayes: 

"With strong seasons under their belt, Senior Andrew Madden and Sophomore Connor Hayes have both raced their way into the 2019 Kentucky Dream Mile.  The Kentucky Dream Mile Showcases the top 16 female and male milers from across the Commonwealth, regardless of Class affiliation. To have two of the top 16 male milers in the state is quite an accomplishment for LCA, the track coaching staff, and the hard work and dedication of both Andrew and Connor. They enter the Dream Mile with the #10 Seed (Connor) and #16 Seed (Andrew). Below is the meet description.

On Friday, May 3, 2019 at 8:00 PM, St. Xavier High School will be hosting the 10th annual running of the Kentucky Dream Mile for Kentucky’s elite boys and girls high school distance runners.

The purpose of this event is to bring together, on one night and at one venue, the most elite high school milers from throughout the state, under the most optimal of conditions, at a time of the season to produce times worthy of national recognition. 

The qualifying standards are high, but that is in the hopes of enabling the most talented Kentucky high school distance athletes to achieve, as a group, what many outside of Kentucky feel isn’t within our state’s level of ability to have several of our elite runners reach a national standard of excellence."
