The WIAA should make a provision for strong Regional performances like they do at Sectionals, especially when there are so many sectionals with incomplete heats/flights.
In D1 there is a Sectional with only 7 boys 4x4 teams and one girls 4x8 with only 7 teams.
In D2 Sectionals there is also a 4x8 with only 7 teams, a 4x2 with only 6 teams and only 13 & 15 vaulters in that same sectional.
D3 has three of the four sectionals with less than full fields in the PV, with one sectional only having 12 boys and girls vaulters. That sectional also only has 13 girls in the 300h and 4x8, and only 15 boys 4x2 teams and 15 guys in the HJ. Another sectional is 1-2 entrants short in three relays and the girls 32. The Colfax Sectional that CCdude mentioned is two light in the girls 4x8, but has 19 in the girls HJ!??!?!
Can someone PLEASE explain how 19 can qualify in the HJ!?!??!
Last observation that relates more to another thread I recall on this site. I noticed a Hyland girl running for SPASH - I’m wondering if she is the daughter of John Hyland who was a great middle distance runner for SPASH? Also see the Schraeder name on a couple of boys at Port Edwards and was wondering if A-R-N-I-E is their father?
