Khari Webb won her second TMSAA 100m Hurdle Title last year and as a freshman, qualified to the state championship this season in the event. More impressively, she is the TN #1 in the 300m hurdles and the favorite by a full second.
TMSAA State Championship
Before the high schools take to the track next week, Tennessee Middle Schoolers will crown state champions at Austin Peay this weekend and MileSplit will be there to cover it. Every year the TMSAA expands it's footprint across the state bringing more and more prominence to the event that just two years ago only encompassed a handful of counties who were participating members. Last year was the first year Williamson County Middle schools participated and this year will be the first year Metro Nashville Public Schools will compete. Here are the qualifiers for this year's competition.
Last year when this article was published, I requested that if anyone had an accurate, detailed breakdown of how the sections and regions were divided among the Class A and Class AA in the TMSAA to please send it on. I can happily say that I was provided that list a couple weeks ago. Before next season begins, users will be able to filter rankings in the same way the high schools can to see how their sons or daughters or athletes rank against those they'll be competing against to qualify for this meet. That's honestly step one in being able to provide content tailored to middle school athletes and coaches before the state meet. Creating those filters will be priority number one in the down months this summer. After that, we will hopefully be able to bring middle school meets some coverage throughout the year beyond just descending on the final meet of the season like we have been doing. In the meantime, see you on Saturday!
