IESA Track & Field
Current State Track & Field Records
Records are for the IESA State Finals only.
IESA does not keep records for regular season contests or games held prior to State Finals.

Pre-1994 records converted to FAT

All records from 1932 1979 have been converted from linear to metrics. Those field events which were measured in metrics for a few years have not been reconverted to linear measurement.

Present classes of 7A, 7AA, 8A, and 8AA boys and girls were begun in 1985. All time records for each event for boys and girls are listed at the beginning of each event: ATG = All Time Girls; ATB = All Time Boys.

All running records previous to 1994 for present classes have been converted to Fully Automatic Timing (FAT) by adding.24 to the time. For example, if the record in the 200 in 1993 was set in a hand held time of 25.24 that record would show as 25.48. All distances and the records for those distances have been converted from linear to metrics: i.e. the 440 yard run time of :53.0 will be listed as 400 meters at :52.7.

Class History

The first IESA state track meet for boys was held in Wenona in 1932 with 28 schools attending. A 24" trophy for the winning team was donated by the merchants of Wenona.

From 1932 to 1984 there were two classes of boys' track, Class A (Heavyweights) and Class B (Lightweights). Class B was based on age, weight, and height from 1932 to 1968. In 1969, the weight factor was dropped and competition was based on age and height factors. Class B was discontinued in 1985, changed to grade level play (7 and 8) and school size, our present classes.

The girls' track program, initiated in 1972 at the regional level, moved to state finals in 1974 in two divisions: Class A for grades five through eight and Class B for grades five and six only. These two classes were continued through the 1979 season. From 1980 through 1984, the Girls classes were changed to correspond with those of the boys based on age and height factors. Class B girls were measured during those years for height the same as the boys. Beginning in 1985, those classes were dropped and reorganized into the present classes by school size and grade level (7 and 8).
