Officials: Due to the shortage of qualified area officials and in order to be assured of quality officiating, we need each team to be prepared to supply ONE field event judge and ONE running event judge for EACH day of competition. We realize that this is not an ideal situation, but it will guarantee that the meet will be officiated in the best possible manner.
