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, which has been discussed for several years by the OHSAA's middle school committee, 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. If a top 16 qualifier cannot attend, the next student-athlete on the performance list will be invited until 16 qualifiers are confirmed.
