Coaches, Growing interest in eliminating the running event prelims at the District meets. The most common rationale is a sprinter could possibly compete in 4 - 6 races in one day. Notify your MSHSAA track & field advisory committee member in your area and express your interest. This item will most likely be on the June 2018 MSHSAA track & field advisory committee agenda for discussion and vote for the eliminate of prelims in the 2019 season. Thanks.

@Appraiser25Y My thoughts are to run prelims in the 100 at the district meet in case of FAT problems with procedures outlined in MSHSAA guidelines. In the HH and 200, no problem as the separation between performances is more spread out. I can, as anybody else can, generate data to support this.

I like Dean's thoughts on this. 100m I can see a need for it still, but 200m and 100H I could see case for eliminating it. However, I personally am fine either way as it is just something you train for and adjust to it has been workable in the past. All for improving though, and this could lead to better performances in those events.

@Hays When did the State meet begin using FAT timing? Do you know if 1980 was the 400 meter dash or 440 yard dash? And, was it FAT timed? Thank you, Jake Holt

FAT in 3A and 4A Boys started in 1977 when they went to Lincoln U for the 1st time. Fat in 1A and 2A Boys started in 1979 when they moved to Lincoln U. Girls I know did in 79 when they went to 4 classes and moved to Lincoln U. Both classes of Girls may have done so in 1977, but not sure. The 440 yard track at Lincoln was marked with different starting lines in 1980 and ran in metric. However, the relays were still did in yards. The next year the track was redone and was in metric.
