JO State Recap
Congrats to all those who competed on Sunday at the JO State Meet. We qualified at least 1 team in every age group and multiple teams in many age groups. As a reminder, the qualification requirements for Regionals were top 35 individuals or top 5 teams. Each team consists of 8 runners, so in age groups where we qualified 2 teams, our top 16 BTC finishers qualify for regionals as a part of the team. The link below details who qualified for regionals in each age group. We will assume that those highlighted on this list want to run at regionals in 2 weeks, but if that is not the case, let us know ASAP so we can open up the opportunity to other runners on the list.

**Note About Nationals Qualification**
At the state meet we spread the teams more evenly to try and qualify as many teams as possible for regionals. At regionals the competition will be tougher and only the top 3 teams and 30 individuals will qualify for nationals, so we will focus on trying to get 1 team qualified in each age group. Nationals teams will be determined based on regionals place (i.e. If we qualify 1 team for nationals, the top 8 BTC finishers will qualify as part of that team, regardless of which team they are designated to for the regional race).
