IESA Class A State Track and Field Meet 8th Grade Results

Because weather conditions Saturday at the IESA State Track and Field Meet did not allow for the 8th grade boys and girls pole vault event to be conducted safely, that event was held yesterday (Monday, May 16). With the pole vault event now officially completed, all the Class A meet results (team and individual) are now official and posted on the IESA website. Here is a brief summary of the 8th grade classes:
