OHSAA to host

middle school track meet

The Ohio High School Athletic Association is scheduled to conduct its inaugural seventh- and eighth-grade track and field state championships May 13.

The event was officially approved by the OHSAA board of directors in October.

Qualifying standards and state qualifiers will be coordinated through an online process at www.BaumsPage.com, with the one-day state championships set for Lancaster High School.

Any running event time must be obtained at a regular-season meet using fully automated timing and field events must be certified by an OHSAA licensed official.

The top 16 performers in each event will qualify for the state championships.

The seventh- and eighth-grade championships will become the second sport the OHSAA has introduced for middle school students. Cross country is the other.
