(All relays are coaches discretion, as usual)

The meet director has softened his stance from last week just a bit. We have a mega five team JV meet on Wednesday. If any athlete runs, jumps, or throws a mark that is better than the published qualifying standards at that JV meet, then I will enter that athlete into the varsity meet as soon as I get home. I will personally be at the finishing line verifying all CHS times, and we will have qualified coaches at all field events getting everyones marks from the field. I will not be assigning events as a head coach, you may choose which events you want to participate in on Wednesday, but your individual discipline coach reserves the right to assign you into events as well. Bottom line is, you make the standard on Wednesday in the JV meet, you compete on Friday in the varsity meet. I strongly suggest that any athletes who are only competing in relays compete in this Wednesday JV meet as well, so we can get times that might get you into subsequent meets.  An open time at a JV race carries more weight than a relay time in a varsity meet with many meet directors.

Again, the above line-ups are not final. They are entered, and those athletes are competing  But, if additional kids make the standard on Wednesday, they will be given the chance to compete on Friday as well. I believe track and field is the fairest sport out there, and this is the fairest way of doing things, so I am grateful we have a chance to reach those qualifing marks.
