The 2022 MSHSAA Class 1-2 State Track and Field
Championship saw storms on Saturday, May 21, causing a pushed back start. It was nearly a 3.5-hour weather
delay for field events and a 2-hour delay for track events on day 2. With that,
a rolling schedule followed, and the athletes weren't the only things that went
fast at the meet. Track events finished before their originally scheduled time.
The Class 2 girls finished the 4x400 at 4:40 p.m, about 35-minutes before they normally
would.The boys high jump finished about 20-minutes later.
A rolling schedule, and rain,
makes a photographer's job much harder, but the Missouri MileSplit crew
captured lots of great action and moments from the Class 2 competition at the
2022 MSHSAA 1-2 State Track & Field Championships.Check them out here, and a some below.
