Unfortunately we cannot accommodate athletes who are taking the AP exam or the SAT. Coaches should check the meet schedule before entering athletes who are taking these exams.

Trainers will be located adjacent to the equipment shed near the finish line.

St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School cannot assume responsibility for any lost or stolen articles. Please turn in any found articles to the press box. If you lose anything, you may check for it at the press box at the end of the meet each day. Boom boxes are not allowed at the meet. MP3 players, mobile phones, or any other electronic devices are not allowed on the infield.
There will be limited access to the infield. Each co-ed school will receive three passes and each single sex school will receive two passes for coaches' use. Athletes are not allowed on the infield unless they are escorted by a meet official. Food and drink other than water are not allowed on the infield. MP3 players, mobile phones, or any other electronic devices are not allowed on the infield. Any athlete found in violation of the above rules will be subject to disqualification.
Field Events Weigh-In:
All throwing implements must be weighed and approved. The weigh-in judge will be available in the weight room from 12:45-1:55pm on Friday and 12:00-1:00pm on Saturday. The weight room is located in the corner of the school nearest the track. Implements weighed on Friday are eligible for use on Saturday. Please be aware that any discus made of rubber will not be allowed.
Athletes must check-in at the field event site by the second call. (Exceptions can be made at the discretion of the meet director). Any athlete who has not reported within 60 seconds after the third/final call will be disqualified from the event.
Special Field Event Information:
Athletes should scratch from field events at the field event site. There will be 10 minutes between flights for warm-up. Athletes have 90 seconds to make their attempt once their name has been called. Finals for field events will begin 10 minutes after they are announced over the PA system. The long/triple jump does have a toe-board. If any part of the athlete's foot touches on or past the red toe-board, the jump is a foul.
If athletes have to check-out from a field event to go to a running event, they have 10 minutes after the completion of their heat to return to the field event. If they do not notify the official that they have returned within 10 minutes, they forfeit any remaining attempts.
In the Long Jump, Triple Jump, Shot, and Discus, if the athlete is gone when all athletes present complete the flight, even if the 10 minutes have not expired, he/she forfeits any remaining attempts.
In the High Jump, if the athlete is gone when all jumpers present have completed jumps at the height, the bar will go up even if the 10 minutes have not expired.
Running Events False Starts:
According to NFHS Rules, athletes will be disqualified from an event with 1 false start (Rule 5-7-4). However, the starter may choose to re-run the event in certain circumstances.
Athletes must check-in at the tent behind the 100m start at the second call. Any athlete who has not reported within 60 seconds after the third/final call will be disqualified from the event. Athletes will be sorted by heat/section and then escorted to the start line. Upon completing the race, athletes must immediately gather their warm-ups and exit the infield area. Athletes may not stay in the infield after their race.
Blocks and Batons:
The meet will provide blocks and batons - athletes must use the blocks and batons provided by the meet. Blocks will be allowed in races under 400 in the prelims and at/under 400 in the finals. (In other words, blocks will not be allowed in the 400 prelims.)
In events with prelims, 12 athletes will be chosen to move on to the timed finals. Prelims will be seeded based on entry time and Finals will be seeded slowest to fastest qualifying times. In field events (except high jump), the top 9 performers will advance to the finals for three more attempts.

If you would like to protest any decision of a judge, you must first complete the protest form and bring your protest form to the Meet Director. If the Meet Director deems it necessary, he will convene the Jury of Appeals. The appealing coach must pay $20 for any appeal requiring a photo read. If the appeal results in a decision change, the fee will be refunded. Please note that some decisions cannot be appealed.
