State Track Results

The 2019 Kansas State Track and Field Meet was an "extended" affair. Due to threatening weather in the Wichita area, the meet scheduled for Friday and Saturday was delayed. Due to heavy rain, the Friday morning start was delayed. When the meet finally got under way, two lightning delays interrupted the meet before it was eventually called on Friday afternoon.

With most events not competed on Friday, the preliminaries in the majority of events were scratched and all events were competed as finals on Saturday. Late Saturday afternoon, another rain delay stalled the competition. The event was finally completed on Sunday, May 26.
