State Qualifiers

In both Class A & AA, schools will be divided into four Sectionals (Section 1 - Upper East, Section 2 - Southwest, Section 3 - Middle, and Section 4 - West). Sectionals will be held across the state with qualifiers advancing to the State Championships.

  1. Class A:
    1. Sections 1 & 2 (Upper East & Southeast) will advance 26 qualifiers (top three teams and the five next best times);
    2. Section 3 (Middle) will advance 66 qualifiers (top eight teams and the ten next best times);
    3. Section 4 (West) will advance 19 qualifiers (top two teams and the five next best times).
  2. Class AA:
    1. Sections 1 & 2 (Upper East & Southeast) will advance 26 qualifiers (top three teams and the five next best times);
    2. Section 3 (Middle) will be divided into 2 Area Meets: Area 11 will advance 45 qualifiers (top five teams and the ten next best times) and Area 12 will advance 35 qualifiers (top four teams and the seven next best times) directly to the state meet;
    3. Section 4 (West) will advance 19 qualifiers (top two teams and the five next best times).
