Welcome to Lordstown "Jean Smith" Invitational
2023 marks the 24th year of the Lordstown "Jean Smith"
Cross Country Invitational, and the Lordstown Athletic
Department would like to thank the schools participating
in this year's event.
Jean Ann Smith was a long-time resident of the village of
Lordstown and was the school's athletic director for several
years. Jean had a desire to see the kids in Lordstown
succeed, and was willing to do anything for her school. One
of her goals was to host a cross country invitational within
the village. Together with Frank Rahde (long-time track
and cross country coach at Lordstown), Jean began the
Lordstown Cross Country Invitational in September of 2000.
Since then, Jean passed away, but she is still remembered
by many for the impact she made in the Lordstown
community, school, and students.
