What Did It Take To Advance To State Last Year? 1A

Dove Creek's Larissa Randolph is already well out in front of last year's minimum qualifying marks in both hurdle events.

We're just now starting to see a few more 1A teams beginning to ramp up their track seasons, so it's time to answer the question: What did it take to advance to State last year in 1A? That question is answered below and on the next page.

Before we get there, though, it's probably worth noting that the composition of this year's 1A is probably slightly stronger than last year's. There's always variation from year to year--and probably more so in 1A than in other classifications--but the trend is more likely to be toward slightly more rigorous marks to get to State than less.

In any case, here's what it looked like for last year:
