High School Girls Indoor Track

    The first organized state championship in Indoor Track & Field for the girls was in 1975 with Mountain Brook capturing the 1A/4A crown.

     By 1979 the girls had split into three divisions with trophies handed out for 4A, 3A, 1A/2A. In 1992 the AHSAA split the girls into four divisions before reverting back to three in 1996.

     Since 2015 the schools have competed in four divisions with 7A, 6A, 4A/5A and 1A/3A meeting each spring in search of a blue map.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
