State Meet Qualifying

Each sectional race will qualify the top 50% of scoring teams (with five or more runners). The top seven (7) from a non-qualifying team will also advance to the state meet. If there is an odd number of scoring teams the number will be rounded up. Example: If 13 teams score in a sectional race, seven (7) teams will qualify for the state meet.
