A school may enter 2 athletes in an event if both athletes have met the qualifying standard listed below during the 2005-06 Indoor season. This mark must be auto-timed in a running event. All results must be in a verifiable meet listed on Dyestat or the Milesplit network. If both athletes met this standard in the 2005 State Indoor Meet and the meet was auto-timed, the standard has been met. In the 1600 and 3200 meter runs, a school may enter two athletes if they both placed in the top 10 in the listed state association 2005 State Championship Cross Country meets.

    Penalty for Falsified Entry

    Any entry that is not verified in the prescribed manner will cause the entering school to forfeit both entries in that event. The disqualified athletes will have that event count against the competition limit of 3 events. REMOVE - Lie and you Lose!
