I have contacted all of the 8th grade parents who athletes are currently involved in winter track, and have let them know that their child's participation cannot continue. I just got a call from my athletic director, and according to CHSAA rules, 8th graders cannot participate with high schoolers. Otherwise the program will be put on probation and eligibility could be affected. We don't want that happening, so 8th graders cannot participate with the club this year.
Next year, however, I hope to see everyone out there!!!
This is on me, this is my fault for not researching this enough. For that, and any other inonvience I have caused, I am truly sorry.
