Class 2 Boys competition at the 2022 MSHSAA Class 1-2 State Track and Field
Championships produced lots of drama in the team standings as well as a handful
of meet records.
meet saw a storm 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.
Missouri MileSplit photographers captured some of the drama and historic moments,
which can be seen here,
