2023 Kellie Wells Classic 2023

Midlothian, VA

Meet Information


The Kellie Wells Classic is back! The former James River Invitational was renamed in honor of our Olympian alum Kellie Wells Brinkley. This will be a great opportunity for you and your team to run, jump, and throw at a great facility. Kellie is extremely excited for this day to see great local and distant talent! There are NO MIDDLE SCHOOL events this year. I recommend your feeder schools and other middle schools to attend The Timberwolf Classic which is the same day.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. Contact Coach Core at cornell_core@ccpsnet.net.
