On the college side of this, there is a rule- NCAA Bylaw 13.11.1.3: In individual sports, it is permissible for an institution's varsity team and an outside team that includes prospective student-athletes to participate in the same open event, provided the event either involves no team scoring or the event uses team scoring such that the institution's varsity team and the outside team are in separate scoring categories. [Reference: Division I Bylaw 13.11.1.3 (competition against prospects).] I'm not sure if there are high school rules against this or not. Also, I believe that by calling them "prospective student-atheltes", the NCAA has closed a loophole that previously existed in that high school runners could simple enter as unattached athletes(this probably applies more to other sports). Either way, it sounds like you're good to go from the college's point of view as long as no scoring takes place or is impacted. The only question is what is an "individual sport"? Is cross country? Is track?

@kshirk I think for definition purposes any sport that crowns individual champions is considered an individual sport. There are team titles, also in all of those sports. So team sports would be ones like soccer, football, baseball, lacrosse, where there is no individual champion crowned along side a team champion.
