The next state in line is my neighbor to the west, South Dakota. They have a unique format for their high school state championships, and one that I have not seen yet. There are three competitive classes in South Dakota for track & field. All three classes have their prelims on Friday (May 24th this year), in different locations. They all come together at the same track for finals the next day. Today’s track was the site of prelims for Class AA. It can be found at Brandon Valley High School. This looks like nice facility, but I especially like how the bleachers are offset, and positioned closer to the finish line, rather than being exactly at midfield.
