No 2021 NJSIAA State Relay Championships
The NJSIAA State Relays will be taking a one year hiatus in 2021 and will return for the 2022 indoor season. The decision was made during the NJSIAA XCTF Committee Meeting this past week, the highlights of which can be found here. The group decision to cancel the relays was mistakenly left off the original minutes but was later confirmed by NJSIAA Assistant Director Bill Bruno to NJ MileSplit.
The reasoning for the cancellation is due to the extra NJSIAA Sectional meets sessions that will be needed due to impending social distancing measures. The current Sectional format will need to be broken down to more dates to help cut down on the amount of teams and people in the facility at one time. The costs normally used to run the State Relays will instead be used for these new Sectional sessions.
