@vamilesplit And, last I checked, we are the sport with the fewest violations in terms of coaches or athletes getting suspended for unsportsmanlike behavior, fighting, etc. I honestly do not understand this decision.

I attended the Robinson High School session on Tuesday, Feb 5. The most interesting and significant rule change is the cross country place judging criteria. As I understand the new rule, regardless of whether or not chip timing is used, the torso across the line is the determining factor and visual/photographic evidence takes priority over computer chips. There have been Virginia state championship medals that would have gone the other way had this rule been in place.

The biggest change was that now everything underneath the uniform is now a foundation garment so there are no regulations for it. They can be whatever color.
