The South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) has announced a pair of changes to the State Track & Field Championships due to ongoing COVID concerns.
Each class will compete both days at their own sites: All Class AA events will be held in Sturgis, Class A events will occur on the campus of Black Hills State and Class B will take place on the campus of South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City. In addition “Practice Day” scheduled originally for Thursday prior to the State Meet will not be held.
Dr John Krogstrand the SDHSAA Assistant Executive Director says the change is being done after consulting with the Site Host, Coaches and Administrators from across the state. The hope is these changes, both in terms of sites and schedules will allow a successful State Meet.
