Great job to all who competed yesterday! It was a very tough course out there and everyone has a lot to be proud of. In preparing for sending our team to regionals, we need everyone that ran this weekend to declare if they plan to attend regionals or not. For the declaration process, please follow the steps below even if you don't plan to run regionals. Regionals is only a week away and we need to have our entries finalized by Tuesday night, so please declare ASAP!
NOTE ABOUT QUALIFICATION:
Note, only those who ran the state meet this weekend are eligible to run at regionals. In order to qualify for regionals you need to be in the top 35 individually or one of the top 5 teams. Each team that we qualified can have up to 8 people on it. In some age groups we qualified 2 or 3 teams which means our top 16 or 24 BTC finishers are qualified as part of those teams. I does not matter which BTC team you were registered under for the state meet. If we qualified a team and you were in the top 8 BTC finishers, you have first rights to the team spot.
Step 1: Check Qualifiers List - BOYS LIST / GIRLS LIST
On the Qualifiers List, all names highlighted in GREEN are currently qualified for regionals individually or part of a team. All names not highlighted are not currently qualified, but will be offered a spot on the team in the order they appear if anyone qualified declines their spot at regionals.
STEP 2: Declare Yes or No for Regionals - CLICK HERE
Enter your name and yes or no declaring your plans to attend regionals. As everyone declares, we will update the qualifiers list (may have a couple hours delay in updating once you declare). If you are someone on the waitlist, you can get an idea of your chances of getting bumped up as people in front of you declare. If you have multiple children, fill out the declaration for each of them.

Regionals Info - Official Website
The regional meet will be held in Yakima, Washington at Franklin Park. Drive time is about 3 - 3.5 hours from Portland depending on the part of the city you live in. Travel to the meet is up to each family individually. Race times will be exactly the same as the state meet, so whatever time you raced this weekend will be you race time next weekend. Keep this in mind when deciding on travel plans - if you are interested in driving up the day of the race, it it more feasible to do so for some of the older kids that race later in the day. Some people inquired about carpooling or sharing rides to the meet. Parents, please talk amongst each other to coordinate or use the carpool sign-up below.
If you are interested in carpooling (Driving or Riding), sign-up HERE.
Once you have signed up you can view the list of anyone else looking to drive/ride and coordinate the carpool. CARPOOL LIST
