High In Trial UKC Premier, Kalamazoo, Michigan (Premier is a huge 4-day annual event.) June 17, 2016
(In 2016, High in Trial signified the fastest dog with the highest score of all dogs in all levels in the trial.)
In January 2018, UKC changed the rules from one HIT per TRIAL to one HIT per LEVEL, and there are 5 levels in each trial. Instead of one HIT per trial, there are now 5 HIT per trial. So pre-2018, HIT was a big deal. After the January 2018 rule change, it is not such a big deal anymore.
