Each school may enter a 4th athlete per event provided that all 4 have met the qualifying standards below. The qualifying standards are based on the 16th place performance from last years meet. In some instances, there were not 16 athletes and the performance is the last place performance. (Note: Although we want to expand the meet, we do not want everyone to just enter 4 athletes just to enter 4. Please make sure that each of your athletes have met the standard if you enter 4 so we can increase the quality of the competition, not just add people!). Only one relay team may be entered. Athletes entered in the Varsity Meet cannot be entered in the JV Meets. (See JV Meet information sheet). If you enter 4 athletes in an event, the performance has to be substantiated through results on milesplit.com.EventBoys StandardGirls Standard100 Meters12.1213.92200 Meters24.8628.48400 Meters56.1166.91800 Meters2:14.072:37.531600 Meters4:48.515:54.953200 Meters10:42.2713:27.01100/110 Hurdles20.3020.31400 Hurdles67.8682.47Long Jump18091400.75Triple Jump3701.53005.5High Jump504404Pole Vault900706Shot Put3705.52511.5Discus Throw101007208If you enter a 4th athlete then ALL 4 athletes must have a meet result above standard and listed for this year on milesplit.com.On-line Entry: All entries must be submitted on-line at SCRunners.com by the entry deadline of 11:59 pm on MONDAY APRIL 17.
