No Groups Or Meet of Champions This Fall, Only Sectionals

It was confirmed Friday with NJSIAA Assistant Director Bill Bruno that there will be no NJSIAA Group Championships or Meet of Champions this fall. Only Sectionals remain on the post-season schedule for New Jersey.

This isn't a decision limited to cross country, as all sports are having post-season schedule cuts due to COVID-19. The news comes with the July 10th release of the NJSIAA's "Model 1 - Delayed Fall Season" plan

Non-Publics will have North and South A and B Sectional meets added this year. Bruno stated the Sectional meet schedule isn't in place yet but did say they would run November 14th, 15th, and 21st, with a bad weather date if needed of November 22nd. Sites and rotation of the Sectionals order will be released closer to August 1st. 

Cross Country Dates Under Model 1

  • Virtual Contact Period - Aug 29th - Sept 13th
  • Practice Start - Sept 14th
  • Regular Season Start - Oct 1st
  • Regular Season Finish - Nov 12th
