Timing - Timing will be FAT. Results will be announced as well as posted on the concession stand. We will not give the athletes their times at the finish line. The results will also be posted on milestat.com following the meet. If we are not able to get FAT timing we will do hand-held time and adjust our times for region.
Finish Line - All coaches, athletes, and spectators are instructed to stay away from the finish line area. Anyone walking near the camera might cause it to not work correctly. Coaches can be in the grass on the football field but keep your distance from the camera. If you have a question about results please come to the scoring booth.
Race Results - The top 4 (1A) and 2 (2A) individuals in each event plus the top 4 relay teams will advance to the Region 1C Track meet. Also, any individual not placing in the top 6 at the district meet but have met the Region 1C qualifying standard for their event will also qualify. If you need a copy of the region qualifying standards just e-mail me and I will send you a copy. State qualifying standards can be found at www.vhsl.org.
