TRACK EVENTS SCHEDULE

We will run CIF order of events with preliminary heats in the 100, 200, and 100/110 hurdles.

Depending on the number of heats, we MAY use both sides of the track at the same time. We

will also be placing the slower heats of the 3200 as well as the Soph-Frosh 4 X 800, in places

we think we help give the athletes better rest periods or to help with the speed of the meet.

We will be running the meet in CIF order.

FACILITIES

We will be competing on the 8 lane all-weather facility at Martin Luther King High School.

King has a 5000 seat stadium that also has a synthetic field turf infield. Athletes and

spectators can sit on both side of the stadium. NO radios or boom boxes will be allowed in

the stands. The warm-up area will be on the grassy area just north of the stadium.

RUSD MANDATES

Tents will be allowed in the bleachers. However, tents must be set up at the top of the

bleachers and NONE may be set up in front of the Press Box. Meet Management will provide

zip ties to anchor the tents to the back fence of the bleachers as the wind will pick up through

the stadium as the days wears on. Tents can be set up out in the warm-up area outside the

stadium.

Only 3/16 inch pyramid needle spikes or less will be allowed on the track and runways.

Athletes spikes will be checked upon entrance to the stadium. 3/16 inch pyramid needle

spikes will be available for purchase at the gate and must be in place on the shoes prior to

entrance into the facility. If the athlete does not have the proper spike in their shoe, they wil

be denied entrance. We will disqualify any athlete that goes onto the track with spikes that

are not 3/16 pyramid needles or less.

NO FOOD, GUM OR DRINKS OTHER THAN WATER ARE ALLOWED ON THE TRACK OR INFIELD

AREA. Any athlete in violation of this rule will be disqualified from the meet. This will hold

true EVEN IF THE ATHLETE HAS JUST FINISHED THEIR EVENT OR THEIR RACE. Be aware that

parents LOVE to hand their kids a bottle of Gatorade or other flavored drinks over the fence

Ponce they are done with their race. Water is fine but thats it!!!!

SEEDING AND CHECK-IN

We will be running Large School and Small School separately. Please remember, coaches will

be allowed to enter up to 6 kids in sprint events(100/200/100H/110H/300H/400) and all field

events. We will be allowing up to 8 entrants in the distance events. We will seed athletes

with like times and performances together in the same heat/flight. This is true except in races

where there were prelims. In the prelim races, well be running heats with whoever shows

up. We WILL NOT be condensing or combining heats as it has proven over the years to be just

too cumbersome and time intensive. Field event athletes will check in at their event while

runners check in at the clerk of the course at the northeast corner of the stadium. Athletes

must check in beginning with the first call and be ready to head to the track after the third

and final call to the clerk. Athletes may be substituted in the place of a previously entered

competitor (unless there has been a prelim for that event) but they must compete under

the name of the person they are replacing. We can add athletes to the field events BUT that

name has to go in BEFORE the meet begins.

REASONS TO DISQUALIFY

Aside From the normal reasons for disqualification (see the NFHS rulebook), meet

management will disqualify athletes or teammates of said athletes on the following offenses.

Warming up on the infield/loitering on the infield

Coaches on the infield (Pole Vault will have a coaching box available) unless previously

identified as a judge or meet official

Athletes that have food, gum or a flavored drinks on the track or infield

Athletes that try to compete in spikes other than 3/16 pyramid needles

Athletes who do not check in at the clerk of the course by the third call.

JUST A REMINDER
