a school may enter more than three individuals in an event provided that all individuals entered in that event meet the District Standard.

*****IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRINCIPAL’S VOTE IN JUNE OF 1996…THERE IS NO LONGER ANY REQUIREMENT FOR DUAL MEET PARTICIPATION BY AN ATHLETE. THE NEW RULE IS: EVERY ATHLETE ENTERED IN THE DISTRICT MEET, MUST BE ENTERED WITH A LEGITIMATE, VERIFIABLE TIME, HEIGHT, OR DISTANCE IN THAT EVENT, WHICH WAS ACHIEVED AT SOME TIME DURING THIS CURRENT SEASON IN AN OFFICIALLY SCHEDULED MEET. Request for an exemption to this rule must be made in writing to the meet director by noon on May 5th


Admission: $7.00

Equipment: Each school will provide its own batons, shot, discus, and vaulting
poles. Starting blocks will be provided.

Rules: 2017 edition National Federation Rule Book and the 15-16 edition of the VHSL handbook.

Note: The one and one-half minute rule will apply in all field events; this
does not include the pole vault.

Scoring: 10-8-6-4-2-1

Calls for Events: First Call – 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time of event
Second Call – 10 minutes prior
Third Call – 5 minutes prior
Athletes should report at First Call. In events run by heats, all
starters must report to the clerk at the check-in area before the first heat is run. Failure to report at the time will result in a scratch. Each individual declared for participate must actually participate.

Scratches: Each contestant in a running event shall report to the clerk of the
course by the third call. Failure to report by the third call will result in a scratch. All individuals declared for participation at the deadline set by the director will have those events count toward their participation limit as specified in rule 84-4-7 (10) whether they compete in them or not. (The deadline is the scratch deadline of 2pm Monday May 15th. ) If an athlete is
excused from an event by the certified trainer on site, or a
physician, that athlete will be eligible for any and all other
events entered unless the certified trainer or physician determines that the athlete’s health would be in danger with any further participation. No event in the meet is to be delayed because a participant is engaged in another event. If a contestant is entered in a field event, which conflicts with the time schedule with a track event in which he is entered, he shall make advance arrangements with the official in charge of the field event to postpone his trials until after the track event has been run. No track event will be delayed to accommodate a contestant competing in a field event.

Individual
Participation: In one meet, a contestant may compete in any number of field
events, but shall be limited to participation in only three running events, except that a contestant who competes in the 3200 meter run may compete in no more than one other running event. In any meet held over two days, a contestant competing in the 3200 meter run may compete in two additional running events as long as only one of the two additional races is contested on the same day as the 3200 meter run.
Uniforms: Please read and know the Uniform rules related to Section 3
Article 1-7. Team members shall wear the school uniform. A competitor must be in the proper track uniform and wearing his contestant number before he will be permitted to compete. Number, when worn, shall be attached to the front of the uniform.





Control of the Field: Each coach is asked to keep his/her squad in the stands or on the hill. The infield, the track (once the meet starts) and the building are off limits except when an individual is competing or warming up. Athletes are only allowed in the locker room portion of the building. Violation could result in disqualification.

Awards: Individual medals for all events will be awarded after the
event is completed. Team awards will be presented as soon as all results have been tabulated after the 1600 meter relay
