Attendance at the meets will be limited. Participating schools will receive wristbands that are available for purchase for $10. Wristbands will be required for entrance into the state meet. Face masks/coverings are required to be worn in areas where social distancing can’t be maintained.
At both sites, the boys races will be run at 3 p.m., with the girls races at 3:45 p.m.
