Mansfield High School is set to host the 17th annual Today’s Bank Invitational Cross Country Meet this Saturday, September 25. As of press time, 22 schools and approximately 500 athletes have registered to round the campus course. As more entries come in, it is expected for those numbers to go up.
Today’s Bank of Mansfield has partnered in recent years with MHS to be the exclusive sponsor of the high school and junior high event. According to meet director, John Mackey, this partnership has been a worthy endeavor for both parties.
“Today’s Bank has been very good to us in the way of sponsorship and volunteer help”, said Mackey. “They don’t just give a donation and go about their business. They dig in and do the work as well. The ladies from the Mansfield branch have volunteered for years working the registration table and passing out awards. It’s super fun for all of us.”
Races begin at 9 AM with the senior girls division. That’s followed with a rolling schedule.The senior boys follow for the second race. Then the junior girls and junior boys cap off the morning runs.
Fans are welcome to the free contest. Parking should be out front around the football stadium. The starting line will be at the northeast corner of the campus near the bus lane. The finish line will be around back near the outdoor volleyball court on the practice field. The course rounds the perimeter of the campus with ample viewing from the practice field.
