If a team is 5th at Districts but qualified 5 individuals, they can Still score as a team at Sectionals Without a 6th or 7th runner. If they place in the top 4 at Sectionals as a team to go to State, can they bring back their 6th and 7th runners for State?

Yes, you compete as a team but only those runners who qualified are eligible to compete... see below from the 2019 MSHSAA XC Manua... From one (1) to seven (7) runners may represent a school in the meets. The first five runners from each school to finish shall be counted in determining the team score. If, on the rare occasion, a school qualifies five or more individuals to the next level of competition, the school shall compete as a team at the next level with those runners who have qualified only. They do not get the same privileges as a team placing in the Top 4 in Class 4 or the Top 2 in Classes 1, 2, and 3.

No, CoachSwift is correct. This time a team qualified so the the school could run any 7 runners on their roster at the next level. Now if they had 5 runners advance, then only those 5 could run at the next level.

Yep, you're right... i misread the last part of the question and addressed only the part about who is eligible to compete at sectionals.
