Approximately 250 athletes of all ages participated in the 1st Annual SEMO All-Comers Meet at the Show-Me Center Recreation Center. Teams and individuals from as far away as Kansas City, Memphis, and St. Louis joined the locals to kick-off what will hopefully become a yearly Cape Girardeau sports tradition.
Coach Ryan Lane and members of the Southeast track and field team directed the two male and female divisions (School/Open-Masters) through the eighteen events with near flawless execution. There were many positive comments and Ryan commented that several groups plan to bring more open and masters runners next year.
The event was sponsored by Missouri Running Company. Full results are available from DirectAthletics by following the link above. David Everett provides an excellent summary of the high school events on Mo Mile Split:
