Initial timeline for Spiritline State Qualifiers releasedOct 24, 2012
The only opportunities to qualify for February’s AIA Spiritline State Championships are approaching.
But before teams can focus on qualifying, they want to know at what time the qualifying will begin on Nov. 10 and 17 at Goodyear Estrella Foothills, the host for the All-Girl Division I and III Agua Fria Spiritline State Qualifier, and Glendale Copper Canyon, the All-Girl Division II and Coed Division I and II host for the San Tan Spiritline State Qualifier. On Friday, the Arizona Interscholastic Association released the timeline for the qualifiers, so that teams and families can start organizing their travel plans.
On Oct. 26, the timeline will be updated with the performance times for each of the more than 100 schools. Tim’s Toyota Center in Prescott will host the AIA Spiritline State Championships Feb. 2.
Only ten teams from each division category will qualify for state.
