Katie Caples Cross Country Invitational
The Katie Caples Invitational is expected to draw schools from the Jacksonville metro area (Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Nassau and Putnam counties) and as far away as the Panhandle, Orlando, Tallahassee, Melbourne, Stuart, Daytona Beach and Gainesville areas to the Bishop Kenny campus for a unique cross country experience under the lights.
Katie Caples, a member of the 1996-1998 BK cross country and track and field teams, was driving home from a March of Dimes walk in Jacksonville to her home on Amelia Island. As she pulled out from an intersection her car was struck on the driver's side. After six days of effort, she could not survive the trauma of the accident and passed away on April 24, 1998. Her teammates then, and those now, miss her inspiration but keep her spirit alive through this special race.
