  • Complete the season with fewer than 2 unexcused absences.

  • Participate in all scheduled meets and team events unless excused by the coaches.

  • Participate in team service throughout the season (i.e. practice and meet preparation, storing equipment, clean up, tent set-up, fund raiser, promotion of the sport).

  • Have a recommendation from the coaching staff.

If meeting the above criteria, you can qualify in any one of the following ways:

  1. Place 8th or higher in an individual event in the Big 9 Conference Meet or Section 1AA Meet.

BIG 9 ALL-CONFERENCE STANDARDS

  • Any 1st or 2nd place individual and all members of the 1st place relay teams
  • Individuals who meet the All Big9 qualifying standards as specified in the Big9 Coaches Manual

BIG 9 HONORABLE MENTION STANDARDS

  • Any 3rd or 4th place individuals and all members of a runner-up relay team

MSHSL STATE TRACK MEET QUALIFYING STANDARDS

  • The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) establishes the standards for qualifying for the state track and field championships. An athlete or relay team must finish in the top 2 in the sectional championships to qualify for state, OR they can qualify by meeting a time/distance standard set by the state.

  • This standard is designed to allow more than 2 athletes qualify from a section if they appear capable of finishing high at the state meet. They are computed by averaging the 5th place mark at the state meet for the past five years, so they are quite difficult to meet.
