The 10th annual Criss & Rita Somerlot Field Event Classic will be held on Tuesday April 24, 2012 at Centerville High School

This, one of a kind boys field event meet, has had some memorable performances over the past 9 years. There has been a who’s who of high school boy’s track and field with a total of 21 state champions competing in what has become one of the best midweek showcase of multi-divisional talent in Ohio. It is one of a few places where a DIII athlete can measure himself against the DI & DII athletes in a non-teamed scored meet (as last year’s Division 2 shot put champion Dylan Dyke of Waverly did last year.) It is also a great place to earn a USATF Junior Nationals qualifying mark for this year’s meet in Bloomington, IN.

This year, to celebrate the 10 years of the meet, we have returned to one of the best first place awards we have ever given - a USA Track & Field Olympic Uniform signed by a US athlete. The following is a list of what signed jersey the event champion will take home.

Discus - John Godina
Shot Put - Adam Nelson
Hammer - Kibwe Johnson
High Jump - Jesse Williams
Long Jump - Dwight Phillips
Triple Jump - William Clay
Pole Vault - Brad Walker
Steeplechase - Robert Gary

All jerseys will be framed and will be a great keepsake for winning your event at this prestigious meet.
