GUIDELINES TO QUALIFY FOR STATE TRACK AND FIELD


(Area) State qualifying meets for boys and girls track and field in all classes will be held Thursday May 9th. KSOM will have reports from the Guthrie Center Class 1A qualifying meet which includes area teams Adair-Casey, Audubon, CAM, Exira-EHK, Guthrie Center and several others.

 

KS95.7 FM will have reports from a Class 3A qualifying meet at Glenwood. Some of the area teams competing there include Atlantic, Creston, Carroll, Harlan, Glenwood and Denison-Schleswig.

 

Here's a reminder of the rules when it comes to state qualifying. This comes from the state qualifying meet manual on the Iowa High School Athletic Association website:

 

State Meet Qualifiers

In Class 4A, top two place winners in each event, plus the next twelve (12) best performances statewide from qualifying meet place winners will advance to the state meet.

 

Class 3A and 2A, the top two place winners in each event, plus the next eight (8) performances statewide from qualifying meet place winners will advance to the state meet.

 

In Class 1A, the top place winner in each event, plus the next twelve (12) best performances statewide from qualifying meet place winners will advance to the state meet.

 

If there are ties, the highest qualifying meet place winner will be the qualifiers. If the tie still remains, the school name, as printed in the IHSAA Directory, will be used as the tie breaker. The first school name alphabetically will become the quailifer. There will be no more than 24 qualifiers in any event.
