Field Team Selection:

  • In the first 4 weeks of the MAC season, all athletes will have the opportunity to have two distances recorded in eligible relay events in their respective age group
  • At week 6 of MAC competition the 4 best athletes (1 athlete per event) that have not committed to a track relay team will be named as the field relay team

So, just a reminder, for those hoping to participate in the State Relay Championships, results in the next 2 weeks of competition (Wk 3 & 4) are important as each athlete’s PB (in eligible events) over the first 4 weeks will be considered for the Relay team selections.
