How do you qualify for state in track?I know that if you finish in the top 2 at regionals you go to state, but how do all others qualify?
Is there a time standard that you need to run below?
Do they take the next x number of fastest?
I looked on the KHSAA website, but I couldn't find the answer.Advertisement
May 24, 10, 06:16 PM #2It is my understanding that the first and second place from region move on to a qualifying event at state. They run in this qualifier on Thursday and if they make the top eight they move on to the finals on Saturday. If they make it to Saturday they are guaranteed a medal because they give medals to the top eight finishers in each event.

A couple of years back, my daughter's relay team did not qualify in regionals, however their time was compared with other qualifying teams from other regions. Their times were better then some of the other regions, so they qualified. I dont know exactly how it works, but that was the gist of it.
