Track and Field

Individuals and teams qualify for the State Meet by competing in District and/or Regional Meets. At the district meet, each member school may enter one boys’ team and one girls’ team. Each team may enter no more than three contestants in individual events and no more than one team in each relay event. 

No contestant shall be allowed to compete in more than 3 running events, including the relays and in not more than 5 events in all. A contestant may compete in 5 field events. Girls and boys will not compete against each other including relays.

The 1A and 6A classifications do not have a Regional Meet; they qualify for the State Meet at the District Meet. The Top 4 from the North District and the Top 4 from the South District qualify for the State Meet.

For classifications 2A through 5A, qualification for the Regional Meet depends upon school classification as shown in the table below:
