The D-4 District Track Meet was held last Friday, May 10 at Rock County High School in Bassett after being rescheduled from Wednesday, May 8 because of potential weather.

Class D had nine district meets. The rules for qualifying for the state meet in Omaha on May 17 and 18 are as follows:

• The winners of the first two places and the next six fastest times regardless of place in each individual running event will qualify for the state meet. There shall be a maximum of 24 qualifiers. If there is a tie for the last qualifying spot, none of those tied shall qualify.

• In the field events the first two places shall qualify for the state meet.

• The winners of first place in the relay events qualify for the state meet, plus the seven fastest times of the non-qualifiers regardless of place, with a maximum of 16 relay teams qualifying. If there is a tie for the last

qualifying spot, none of those tied shall qualify.

• Athletes placing first or second must have cleared 9’6” or higher to qualify in the boys’ pole vault and 6’6” or higher in the girls’ pole vault.

• Regardless of place is to mean that any competitor in an individual running event who finishes third through eighth in their respective district meet could qualify for the state meet if their time is one of the six fastest times of the non-qualifiers from all districts submitted.

• Regardless of place is to mean that any relay team who finishes second through eighth in their respective

district meet could qualify for the state meet if their time is one of the seven fastest times of the non-qualifiers from all districts submitted.

In addition to the regular state qualifiers in boys' field events, all shall qualify who equal or exceed the

following marks in Boys' 2019 NSAA District Track and Field Meets. (The qualifying marks are determined by

using the average distance/height of eighth place for the past 3 years.)
