WDTB Returns to the Airwaves!

Down the Backstretch will broadcast live from the MSHSL State Track and Field Championships at Hamline University on Saturday with full coverage of the Class AA finals that day.

If you enjoyed our coverage of the Hamline Elite-Meet in April, you should like our State Meet coverage as well.

We'll post text descriptions of the races the minute they happen and report official results as soon as they become available. We also plan to upload video of all the Saturday morning Class AA races shortly after the session ends.

For both of the Friday sessions and Saturday's Class A session, we'll post event-by-event descriptions and results as soon as the sessions are complete.

(The MSHSL charges us $150 per session to cover the meet "live," so we can only afford to go live on Saturday morning. Same-day, right-after-the-session-ends, text-only coverage is free to us, so that's what we'll do for the other sessions. Our Saturday morning coverage is made possible by a contribution from a generous member of the Minnesota track and field community.)

We look forward to covering what promises to be an historic meet!
