Has MSHSAA decided upon a plan for the State meet? 1 day or 2 day event?

Note that the 1 day schedule, I think, has the 3200 as the 1st event.

I was under the impression that this decision had to do with what would be allowed regarding spectators. JC Public Schools has lifted all restrictions on spectators for the spring sports season (I am pretty sure). This would leave me to believe that the 2-day format could (should) be back on the table.

@lswdistance This was from Don Mauer on 2/22 responding to my e-mail. It's been many weeks and I haven't heard an official announcement, but they did address it as one day in the pre season video which prompted my e-mail. The final decision to go with single day state meets will be made early next. If we do that, the 3200 will be run first and the 4x800 will follow, with and extended time between each event.

On the projected schedule the 3200 would start at 11AM and the 4X8 would start at 1PM. No prelims - all heats against time.

@Hays Do you have an idea the dates for the 1 day State meet? Hotels will be at a premium.

@mbusselman No I do not. As a rules interpreter, I was given the sheet with the projected 1-day state meet, but I did not attend that meeting (early Feb)in person due to weather and thinking because of that weather, this may be the last day I can teach in person for a while and it was. My educated guess it will be based on the rotation of classes on the track for this year if you can find that.

@mutiger31 When is MSHSAA going to "officially" send out this change has been made because I have not received anything and there is nothing on the MSHSAA website that indicates we are for sure doing a 1-day state meet. It appears we are moving in that direction and it would be nice to know for sure so that we can get buses and hotel arrangements made for the switch of schedule.

11 am to start the 3200 makes no sense in late May. Better than 3 pm, yes, but I don’t understand why an event like that couldn’t be started at 8 or 9. Anyone have an idea of the reasoning behind this? I doubt there’s a good excuse to have a schedule like that.

Is the concern that some schools will not be allowed or won't want to stay in hotels, so the later start will give them time to drive in that morning and then drive home after the meet is complete?

@lswdistance I don't know but I sure wish they would say for sure. It impacts the distance athletes a lot.
