Qualifying for the State Meet:
In all running events, the throws, and the long jump, the top 3 finishers from our region will automatically qualify for the state meet. Also qualifying will be the 4 athletes from all Regions combined that had the best performances in each event that did not automatically qualify in those events.
In the high jump and pole vault the top 4 finishers will automatically qualify along with anyone that meets a pre-determined standard that will be announced by the state games committee.
There is a 3rd way that a relay team or individual might qualify. If there are not 16 qualifiers in a particular event, the WVSSAC will go through the regional results to fill up the 16 slots. This happens when a regional or more than one regional has few or no entrants in a given event. This kind of thing sometimes happens in Class “A”, especially.
