SCTCCCA winter meeting announced

The 2007 winter South Carolina Track and Cross Country Coaches Association meeting is slated for Jan. 13, according to a letter sent to coaches from association President Danny Brooks.

The meeting starts at 10 a.m. in the South Carolina High School League's office conference room in Columbia. At 9 a.m. is the officer's meeting.

Two proposals that will be discussed and voted at the meeting:
New Class AAAA cross country qualifying procedure proposal
The top two from each region would make state, also four at-large teams would make it for a total of 20 teams. These four would come from the international division of the Coaches Classic meet. The top four teams (in the International division) at Coaches Classic that did not make it out of their region, would qualify for state.
