The Missouri State High School Activities Association announced improvements at Dwight T. Reed Stadium have forced a number of changes to this year's state track and field championships.

The infield will be closed off to all competitors, media and photographers. The awards area will be moved outside of the stadium and the discus will be held next to the baseball field near the stadium.

MSHSAA also noted that any athletes, coaches or spectators with allergies to high dust levels or with contact lenses should be advised to take appropriate measures before arriving at the stadium. Windy conditions combined with the dirt infield may cause dusty conditions.
