  • For a meet to be a qualifier for the HSR, the meet MUST use Direct Athletics for entry and results and must be listed on the qualifying meets page of this site by February 24.
  • Be sure your meet has an indoor venue on Direct Athletics as this can prevent your results from showing up on the performance list
