CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The VHSL has just announced that the 2019 3A/4A State Outdoor Championships will be held at Liberty University's Matthes-Hopkins Track Complex. This is the first time in 16 years that either the 3A/4A or AA State Meet is not at Harrisonburg High School.
Though all the details are unclear at this point, it is likely that Liberty Christian Academy (LCA) will be the host school and that Blue Ridge Timing will be timing the meet. That means you can expect LIVE results, video boards, and many other features that this meet has not seen since Atlantic Coast Timing timed it last.
Though the facility is overshadowed by the indoor track complex, this outdoor track is a home run for 3A/4A. It features collegiate level pole vault, shot put, long jumps, and actually large high jump aprons. This venue is now the best one hosting states.
The track is an eight lane Beynon surface (resurfaced in 2012) with 1,000 permanent seats on the homestretch side.
