District Championship History

District is now the one and only qualifying meet to get to State, so the margin for error is razor thin. Around Missouri, there are eight Districts in the large school Class 4 - SLUH's class. Every school with a cross country team is eligible to compete at their District meet. In the 2019 season, 103 Class 4 schools took to the line at Districts - about 13 schools per District. The top two teams from each District (and any individuals in the top 30 from non-qualifying teams) qualify to State. That qualifies 16 teams, plus individuals, to compete at the State Championship.
