PIERRE, S.D. (GoWatertown.net) — The South Dakota High School Activities Association have announced changes to the State Track and Field Championships due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Each class will now compete both days at their own individual site. Class AA in Sturgis at Woodle Field, Class A at Lyle Hare Stadium on the campus of Black Hills State University and Class B at O’Harra Stadium on the campus of South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

The schedule of events have also been modified to mitigate risk concerns of virus spread.  See the schedule changes HERE.

To help with social distancing and mitigation efforts, the SDHSAA requests that all fans wear masks and remain socially distant from one another during the event as possible. Additionally, teams and school personnel will be asked to space out throughout the facility to assist with social distancing concerns.

The 2021 State Track and Field Championships are scheduled for May 28th and 29th, 2021.
