For the second year in a row, the Montana High School Association has elected to use a set of state meet qualifying standards for Class AA track and field teams.

Each week, I'll post an updated list of which Missoula athletes have qualified in which events.

This list is compiled with as much accuracy as possible, but remember, these are all unofficial results until the MHSA reports them.

So here is the inaugural list of Class AA state qualifiers, starting with the girls:

400 METER DASH:

Elle Tinkle (Big Sky, 58.95)

 

1600 METER RUN:

And now for the boys:
