Filling Out The History Of State Meet Locations


Jeffco Stadium has been the combined state meet location for 10 years now, but it wasn't always that way.

Many of you know Craig Bailey. He, along with Ken Howell, times the state track and field meet each year and he shoulders much more than his share of the burden of keeping CHSAA's records and such up to date.

Recently, Craig sent me a question about locations where the state track and field meet has been held. His suggestion was to crowd source the issue to see how much of the rest of the picture we can fill out. 

From 1990 forward, Craig's history of state meet locations is mostly complete and looks thus:

Is anyone in this reading audience able to fill in and/or correct any of the above? If so, please drop me an email at versawa@msn.com.

No record of location exists prior to 1956. 

Craig and I both realize that it's going to take an appeal to older members of the crowd here to fill in any of the information missing above. If you're able to help at all, it's deeply appreciated.

No record of state meet location exists prior to 1956. If you know of a well to drill that goes back that far, please share that information.

Thank you!
