You will be entering the meet twice, once on the VHSL regional entry form and again on Milestat. Both entries are due by 11:59 PM on Thursday, February 6. On the VHSL form, you must state the meet and the date of each performance. Milestat entries will open on January 29. VHSL entry forms must be emailed to Craig Woshner. Remember to include names of potential alternate relay runners who are not participating in an individual event.

MILESTAT ENTRIES ARE FINAL AND MUST MEET THE 3-EVENT RUNNING EVENT RULE. RELAY TEAM MEMBERS ARE NOT FINAL UNTIL THE RELAY CARD IS TURNED INTO THE CLERK. SINCE THIS IS A ONE DAY MEET, ANY ATHLETE ENTERED IN THE 3200 METER RUN IS ONLY ALLOWED ONE OTHER RUNNING EVENT.

Please email your completed VHSL entry forms to woshnerc@fcpsk12.net . Coaches will be emailed a VHSL district entry form and coaches may also find this form at vhsl.org. Remember that all performances should be verified on the VHSL form.

You will also be entering on Milestat and the Milestat entries will be uploaded into the district meet. If there is a conflict with the Milestat and VHSL entries that cannot be resolved, the VHSL entry will override the Milestat performance (I will attempt to contact the coach first). Early VHSL entries will be most appreciated!

Entry note for the 1000 and 3200 meter runs: you may use 800 meter or 3000 meter converted times from the 2019-20 indoor season, using the calculator at https://www.milesplit.com/calc . Please note these converted times with an asterisk (*) on the VHSL entry form for verification.

SCRATCHES: Email early scratches (no penalty) to woshnerc@fcps.net by the entry deadline but before noon on Friday, February 7 so the meet can be properly seeded for the program and events reseeded. After this time, scratches will be taken at the coaches meeting without penalty. No additions or substitutions will be allowed after the February 6 11:59 PM milestat and VHSL form deadline.

TEAM PERSONNEL: All team personnel including managers, scorekeepers, etc. must enter with the team. All team personnel must stay in the designated team area except for athletes reporting for events. Coachs boxes in the infield for field and running events will be described at the coaches meeting.

You may use the best time of the season in a 3 or more team meet even if it is not a regional qualifying time (as long as it is on Milestat).
