SCOREBOARD: Class A state track and field – Day 1

All four Montana high school classifications utilized track and field qualifying standards for the first time in 2016.

Qualifying standards, which vary from class to class, allow athletes to secure berths at their respective state meets during the regular season. If an athlete meets or exceeds the qualifying mark in a specific event at an eligible meet, they can automatically enter that event at the state meet, regardless of their placing at the district and/or divisional meets. Eligible meets require fully automatic timing for track events. All field events are considered.

Some of the 2020 qualifying standards have changed from last year's version. Below are the updated qualifying standards for boys and girls in each class in each event:
