We understand this is the first meet of the year for many athletes and establishing accurate seeding marks isnt always possible. We will make every effort to select the best possible fields for the Invitational sections. Previous outdoor state finalists will
be given priority, but we will also consider athletes who have yet to earn a quality mark in an invitational event. If you have an athlete who you feel should be considered for an invitational section, please provide addition information with their entry so we can more accurately determine the best possible fields.
