A Quick Look At The New York State Standards

We're into the busy part of the season, where athletes are rounding into shape. We thought it's a good time to check in on how to start qualifying for the State Meet.

Entries: TWO (2) per section per individual event, with a possible third entry if the individual has placed third in their state qualifying meet and has met the qualifying standards below ... ONE relay per section for each of the three relays, with a SECOND being added if they have hit the State Standards ... The boys and girls Intersectional Relay will be composed of your third place finishers in the 300, 600, 1000, and 1500/1600 meter races, unless those individuals have met the qualifying standards. Those athletes must then compete in the individual event, and then the fourth place finisher competes in the relay ... A section may list up to two alternates for the intersectional medley relay, provided that that individual is not competing in the individual 300, 600, 1000, or 1500/1600m runs.
