A meet in which the fastest seniors from the Midwest compete for one last high school track and field victory.
The Midwest Meet of Champions is one of the longest running postseason high school track meets in the nation. It began in 1974 as the Tri-States Meet hosted by Northrop HS in Fort Wayne, IN. Over the years, meet hosting has alternated between Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. 2010 marked the return of the meet to its origins!
Several of its alumni have won medals at the Olympic Games or World championships. Earl Jones, Brian Diemer, Jim Spivey and Maicel Malone are some of the athletes who competed in the meet before having standout careers at the international level.
