Back To Two Trophies
There will be two trophies in each race both weekends of the MIAA tournament. The 2nd place team’s trophy will no longer read “Finalist” but rather “Runner-up.” The philosophy being all teams at the meet are “finalists.”
Indoor Track & Field Update:
The format will look dramatically different this year. It will be much shorter and have a different lay-out. It will have 4 pages of rules/narrative. Then each meet (Division 1-5 and the Meet of Champions) will have its own Google Sheet with all the relevant meet-day information. The goal is to provide a single page to print with all the critical information. If you find yourself struggling to understand it, please contact either one of us via email. The Committee voted that the 300 meters will be run in lanes the whole way at the tournament. This is in response to the survey where almost 70% of respondents preferred that method. The MSTCA will run the 300 at its meets this way as well. (What your individual leagues do for their meets is NOT determined by us).
