Running finals top 8 athletes from the East and top 8 athletes from the West on Wednesday will be seeded according to their place and time on Wednesday to be run in 2 heats, one East and one West.
800 Meter Run Top 10 athletes from the East and top 10 athletes from the West with verifiable times in the 800 Meter Run will automatically qualify for the finals on Thursday (we will use the posted performance list which is to come). Athletes not in the top 10 in the 800 Meter Run will run on Wednesday and are eligible for a place if their time from Wednesday is faster than the 8th place time on Thursday.
1600 and 3200 Meters All West 1600 Meter Runners will run on Wednesday and East 1600 Meter runners will run on Thursday. All East 3200 Meter runners will run on Wednesday and West 3200 Meter runners will run on Thursday.
4 x 400 Meter Relays Since the East and West have more than 8 teams, we will look at the performance list to verify times in seeding the teams. There must be a minimum of 3 teams in the slow heat.
4 x 100 Meter Relays Since this is one meet spread over two days, athletes are still limited to 4 events, no more than 3 running. If an athlete is entered in a prelim event but does not advance to competition on Thursday, that still counts as one of their events. (i.e. an athlete is entered in the 100, 200 and 400, they qualify in the 200 and 400 for Thursday but not the 100. Since they ran in 3 prelim events on Wednesday they are not able to be on the relay team on Thursday even though they are only in 2 events on Thursday)
Scratches Since this is one meet spread over two days, athletes that scratch from an event are not able to compete in any additional events (i.e. an athlete does not show up for their 100 prelim on Wednesday, they cannot compete in any other events Wednesday or Thursday)
Entries Each school is allowed 3 entries per running or field event and one relay in each relay event. Online Entry must be done by Sunday, March 16, 2014 by 6:00 pm. Website for online entries is: http://www.flrunners.com
Scratch Meeting We will hold a scratch meeting at Winter Park High School on Monday, March 17, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the West cafeteria. At this meeting you will be able to make any changes you would like but once we leave the meeting, all entries become final. No changes will be made after that. We will also make field event assignments and discuss any other details that need to be addressed.
