Boys Track & Field Progression of Records

Note: Beginning in 1980, all running events were conducted at metric distances. Records established prior to that year in non-metric events have been converted to their metric equivalents and are listed in the above chart. When these converted times are bettered in future state finals, the record holder for the English distance event will be maintained in the chart below under the Progression of Records category with the English event and record time. Events that are no longer contested at the state track and field meet also are listed below.
