Congratulations! You have been invited to the Arizona Meet of Champions, where you will compete against the top three individuals in your event from each division of the Arizona State Championships along with the top 20 of the entire combined state rankings regardless of division.

GREAT SOUTHWEST MEET: All athletes that are going to the Great Southwest: We will have an organizational meeting at the Meet of Champions, starting at 4:00 PM in the team room on the Northwest side of the track. We will have some light snacks provided and please bring a t-shirt for the t-shirt exchange. We will also organize relays and set agendas for our whole team in general. This meeting is mandatory, so please let Coach Stephen Carson 480-213-5726 E-mail or Eric Bolus 602-826-7536 E-mail know if you will be having trouble attending the meeting.

Who: We want State Champions and the next two places from all classes or divisions, but we also want a STRONG field. So, if an athlete is among the top 20 of the state all classifications combined, plan on the MOC as your next event after the state track meet. This includes relays. The exception is the girls and boys pole vault. Only State Champions and any girl in the state that has cleared 11 feet or any boy that has cleared 14 feet are invited. The girls opening height is 10 feet and the boys opening height is 13 feet.

Events/Payment: We will have all Arizona running events including the relays and all field events. We have to charge (ten dollars per athlete not per event), sense we do not have an active Arizona Coaches Association right now to help foot the bill. Please pay Coach Shaun Hardt at the state track meet and make all checks out to Queen Creek Athletics Boosters, memo Track. If you are having problems you can pay Coach Hardt at The Meet of Champions, but would really prefer it before then.

The Meet of Champions (MOC) is an AIA/USATF Sanctioned Event--a continuation of the Luke-Greenway Meet of Champions which was held from the 1950's to 2002. The aim is to provide a forum at which the best athletes from each state meet compete in a head-to-head finals only competition. Athletes who won their event or placed top three at each of the state meet divisions are automatically eligible for entry into the MOC. The next top twenty performances in the state combined all classifications complete the rest of the field of athletes.
