High school swimmers and track and field athletes with disabilities soon will have more opportunity to compete at the Oregon School Activities Association state championships.

Beginning with the OSAA Swimming State Championships in February and OSAA Track and Field Championships in May, there will be two predetermined events. The 50 and 100 meter freestyle events are scheduled for swimming and 100 and 400 meter dashes at track and field.
