The local Kentucky Elite Track and Field team had 14 of its 18 team members qualify for the USATF National Junior Olympics in Jacksonville, Fla. July 27- Aug. 2.

The brightest spot of the weekend belonged to Landen Bartleson, who won the gold medal in four events (100 meter dash, 200 meter dash, 400 meter dash and the long jump).
