NFHS Network School Broadcast Program broadcasting: If a school plans to stream a postseason event and has an NFHS Network School Broadcast Program account, it can stream through the NFHS Network.

NFHS Network Affiliate Program: A third party wanting to become an NFHS Network affiliate will be granted exclusive rights to a postseason event at no cost. The outlet must stream the event solely to the NFHS Network. The outlet may broadcast the event in its own manner and may keep its advertising. Outlet will also be eligibile for royalties.

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.
