Final Saturday For Winter Track Championships Qualifying

The 2020 winter track season hits its fourth Saturday of qualifying Feb. 1 with six qualifier meets for the February 8 CA Winter Championships at Arcadia HS.

This is the final opportunity for athletes to hit a qualifying mark for the winter finale.

The CA Winter Championships serves as a bridge between the cross country season and the official start of the CIF track and field season later in February. 

Athletes looking to qualify to compete at the Championships on Feb. 8 at Arcadia HS must hit a qualifying standard (listed below) at one of the designated qualifier meets.

Also, athletes who do qualify must pay for their Championships entry and receive their 'Golden Bib' at the qualifying meet. The 'Golden Bib' serves as the qualifying athlete's entry ticket into the Championships.
