Girls to run 5Ks in postseason
Girls will now run the same distance as boys in high school cross-country.
At its June meeting, Kansas State High School Athletics Association approved a changed 4K postseason events to 5K. Schools still will choose the distance for events during the regular season.
The change came after a complaint filed with the U.S. Office of Civil Rights regarding the difference in distances between boys’ and girls’ races.
