It's been long speculated that the UIL state track and field meet would be very different this year. There have been many rumors speculated over the last three weeks at least. The decision has been made and is now public information per the UIL website.
Contrary to popular belief, the meet will still be held in Austin, Texas at the University of Texas' Mike A. Myers Stadium; the dates have been set for May 6 - 8, 2021.
This info follows last week's announcement that the numbers of qualifiers from the area meets were moved back to four instead of two as previously stated at the beginning of the 2021 track and field season. That could mean the regional meets will return to the previous two day formats with prelims and finals.
For more information, see the UIL website.
