Regular Season

  • Scoring during dual-meet matches: Each match-up within a dual meet is scored separately; For example if Team A, B, and C compete in the same meet, there will be three results scored separately: A vs B; A vs. C, and B vs. C; Within each match, the team's top 5 runners score (First place receives 1 point, 2nd place receives 2 points, etc.) and the lowest score between the two teams wins; If a team does not place their top five finishers in the overall top 10, they will displace the next highest runner of the opposing team after their 7th slot to round out their top five; Example 1: Team A has the top 9 finishers so they receive 1+2+3+4+5 = 15 points and Team B receives 8+9+10+11+12 = 50 because Team B displaced Team A's 8th finisher through 12; Example 2: Team A has 3,4,6,7,8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 and Team B has 1, 2, 5, 13, and 14 Team A will receive 28 points (3+4+6+7+8) and Team B receives 31 (1+2+5+11+12) because B picks up A's 11th and 12th spots (and not the 9th and 10th ones which would be A's sixth and seventh finishers) to be able to round out their top 5
  • The top three teams in each division (and any ties) qualify for the State Championship meet



Class Championships

  • Class Meets (Class A, B, and C) occur on the last Saturday of October
  • A team's top five finishers count towards the teams total score; For example if a team has the 1st place finisher at the meet, the 5th, 22nd, 25th, and 42nd then their team score is 95 (or 1+5+22+25+42); Team ties are broken by the 6th place finisher
  • The top team finisher in each class meet that had not already qualified for the State Championship based on dual meet records, will qualify for the State Championship; Additionally, three other at-large schools qualify for the State Championship: The times of the three class meets are combined, the times for the 15 teams that have already qualified are subtracted, and the top three schools from that calculation take the final three spots
  • The team champions are the the teams that gather the least amount of total points from the finishes of all their individual runners in that one race


    State Championships

  • The State Meet is held on the Sunday of the following weekend after the Class Cahmpionships (First of November)

  • The team champion is the team that gathers the least amount of total points from the finishes of all their individual runners in that one race
