Bulldog Classic

The Bolles School

Date: Friday, March 1th, 2019

Registration: Each school must use Direct Athletics for online entries to the Bulldog Classic. To register for this year's meet, go to DirectAthletics.com and find the meet on the schedule. You can then register your athletes using performances found in the database. Entries are due no later than 11:59 p.m. Monday, February 25th. Direct Athletics will not process entries after that time. Mail or bring entry check to meet. $50 per team. $90 for both boys and girls. If you have less than 5 athletes, you can pay $10/athlete.

Entries: You can enter two athletes in each event and one relay team per event. Athletes who do not meet the standards in the distance events can sign up for the "B" races on the day of the meet. "B" races have unlimited entries and the faster heats end up being very competitive. There will be minimum marks for Field events, see the Field Events Section below. Standards for the individual distance races are as follows. If you enter an athlete at a time that does not meet the standard, that entry will not be accepted. If you enter an athlete in the High Jump or Pole Vault with a seed mark that is below opening height (or with no mark), they will not be accepted. Please check the entry list on www.halfmiletiming.com the week of the meet to confirm your entries. Athletes should have verified marks in the Direct Athletics database that meet the standards below to be accepted.

800: Girls: 2:34 Boys: 2:06

1600: Girls: 5:35 Boys: 4:40

3200: Girls: 12:15 Boys: 10:05

Also, if you have more than two athletes in an event on your team that have verified performances in the Direct Athletics database that shows they could have scored at last year's Bulldog Classic, you can enter the additional athletes by emailing their information to Coach Dearing and their points will score in the meet. Any additional entries beyond the first two will be charged a $5 extra entry fee to compensate the timing company for their manual entries of these athletes.

Every athlete will have their first attempt measured in the throws and jumps. After that, that athlete must meet the minimum standard in order to receive a mark. There will not be finals in any field events. We will be using a "Plus 1" instead of finals. If an athlete meets the required minimum in their event, they will be allowed one additional attempt at the conclusion of their flight. The athlete's best mark out of their four attempts will be used for placing. We are using this method to allow for athletes to complete their field events before the running events begin. I apologize if this in an inconvenience.
