State Meet Qualifying

Each sectional race will qualify the top 33% of finishing team scores from the respective sectional race. Teams must be entered by the deadline date of Oct. 29, 2020 at noon. If a section has a number of finishing teams not divisible by three (3), the number of qualifying teams will be rounded up. Example: If 10 teams score in a sectional race, four (4) teams will qualify for the state meet.

Each sectional race will qualify the top seven (7) individual finishers from non-qualifying teams.
