The Lehi and Skyridge track and field teams did not compete last week during spring break. At the mid-point of the season, both schools have multiple athletes who have already qualified for the state championship meet as of April 10.

Athletes gain entry to the state meet by achieving specific standards established by the Utah High School Activities Association at sanctioned invitational events or by placing at region championship meets.

Both Lehi and Skyridge return to action at the Utah County Invitational at Provo High School on April 16-17. The state meet is scheduled for May 18-19 at Davis High School.
