District Championship History

District is now the one and only qualifying meet to get to State, so the margin for error is razor thin. Every school with a cross country team is eligible to compete at their District meet. This year, 71 different Class 5 schools (SLUH's class) will compete at one of eight district meets around the state. At each District, only the top two teams and any individuals in the top 15 from non-advancing teams qualify to the State meet. The season ends for teams or individuals who don't make that cut-off.
That qualifies 16 teams, plus a handful individuals, to compete at the State Championship.
