UHSAA 5A Championships

The state meet this year has been moved to Soldier Hollow due to COVID restrictions on Salt Lake City.  


Online tickets will be required to be purchased for all fans attending the State XC event at Soldier Hollow. The tickets will be available for free through the UHSAA GoFan ticketing portal. All spectators and administrators will be required to show entrance to the Soldier Hollow event. Masks are required at both the Cedar High and Soldier Hollow sites. The UHSAA has closed ticketing for our race because of the number of ticket requests.  There is one part of the course that is probably accessible from places that are not technically part of the venue if you don't already have tickets.

There will be a limit on spectators, but we should be fine with 2 to 3 per runner.  The meet will be streamed at ksl.com

Waivers must be filled out for the venue if that didn't happen for the earlier meet at Soldier Hollow.

Here is a link to the course map if you want to see where you want to go to view the race.

Divisionals Results

 We had mixed results today which was unexpected.  Our girls team didn't qualify for state, we missed by less than 20 points,  but Megan was one of the six individuals that qualified.  

The boys did qualify and along with Megan will compete at state on Thursday October 22 at Soldier Hollow.
