Concord Cannon hosts NCISAA 3A track this weekend

Cannon School will the host the 2009 North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA) 3A State Track and Field Championships on May 15-16 at the School’s Concord, N.C., campus. Last summer, Cannon installed a new eight-lane, rubber track and modernized its field facility. This meet marks the first time Cannon has hosted a state championship event.

Athletes from 17 North Carolina independent schools will participate in the meet, including the following local schools: Cannon School, Charlotte Christian School, Charlotte Country Day School, Charlotte Latin School, Covenant Day School and Providence Day School.

“We are looking forward to hosting the NCISAA state track championships on our new track and field complex at Cannon School,” said Cannon’s Director of Athletics Doug Maynard. “Our new facility should provide an enjoyable competitive experience for all the student-athletes.”
