Track & Field: 2024 District 3 Championship – Boys Preview


Friday and Saturday, athletes from across South Central Pennsylvania will convene at Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium for the 2024 District 3 Track & Field Championship Meet.  For every athlete who is competing, they have accomplished a feat that very few have done.  Out of this competition, a select few will be invited back to Shippensburg to compete next weekend at the PIAA State Championship Meet.

The District meet serves as a qualifier for the State Championships.  In the AAA competition, the top five finishers in each event will earn an automatic bid.  For AA athletes, they must finish in the top two in order to earn an automatic invitation.  In both classifications, the PIAA will accept up to eight qualifiers from each event who meet the State Qualifying Standard. Below is a list of this year’s Standards.

When reviewing the information below, keep in mind that every school competes in AAA, except Annville-Cleona, who competes in AA.

Below is a brief preview of each school fortunate enough to qualify athletes for the District Championships.  Included with each school is a list of the LebCo athletes who are entered into each event, along with where they are ranked heading into the weekend.  While the current rankings give an indication as to whether an athlete may be able to finish in the top eight to earn a medal and/or qualify for States, anything can happen at a meet like this when all of the hard work these athletes have endured is put to the ultimate test.
