Re: Sub Districts at Martin Field – Walla Walla
Wednesday, May 9 2012 – 2PM start
Martin Field in Walla Walla, Wednesday May 9, 2012.
Field events will begin at 2:00PM and the running events at 2:45 PM. The running events may get pushed back depending on the number of field event entries.
Entries are due by Monday May 7th, 2012 11:00PM on athletic.net. and make sure your rosters are updated. Make sure the athlete’s names and school year are correct. The State Meet will use this information for the State program and heat sheets. This will give you plenty of time to enter your athletes in the proper events.
A performance list will be made available to all coaches by 12:00 PM Tuesday May 8, 2012. After the performance list has been published you will not be able to add athletes or change events the day of the meet. You will only be able to make scratches. We will meet at 1:15PM for a coaches meeting to discuss any scratches prior to the beginning of the meet and pick up your field event assignments.
Mike Michaels – DeSales
Scott Kent – Garfield Palouse
Andrea Miller – SJE / LW
4 attempts - no finals in the following field events:
Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, & Triple Jump
Throwing implements will be weighed in 1 hour prior to the start of the meet.
We will run these events in flights, with the higher seeded athletes going last. The top 8 finishers in the field events will qualify for the District 9 2B Championships.
High Jump: Opening height for Girls 3’10"
Opening height for Boys 4’10"
Pole Vault: Opening height for Girls and Boys 6’ 0"
Pole vault will need to weigh in 1 hour prior to the start of the meet, please bring your weight verification form.
In the 3200m and 1600m run we will use a water fall start. If there are too many entries we can switch to an alley start.
In the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 100/110 hurdles, and 300m hurdles we will run in heats. The top heat will go first, and will start on the published time schedule. We will not start races early to give athletes the proper time to prepare, and stay healthy if the weather is warmer than normal.
Hurdles Crews: We will need everyone help to set up the hurdles and shuffle them around. At Districts you will be responsible for your athlete’s lane.
In the running events the 8 fastest runners will qualify for the District 9 2B Championships. F.A.T. (full automatic timing) will be used for all the running events. Hand times will be used only as a backup. It is very important that you bring a timer with a stopwatch.
Coaches you will need to declare a relay team for the meet on Wednesday. The team should have a slip with the name of the four runners in the order they are running. This will help monitor the number of events an athlete is allowed to compete in.
If your team is disqualified in the sub districts meet it will not advance to the District meet.
Remind your athletes of the following:
NO ELECTRONIC DEVICES (I-Pods, cell phones, MP3 Players, cameras, etc). On the field or track this includes warm up period. These are grounds for disqualification.
Proper TEAM issued uniform will be enforced.
This is not the meet to push the boundaries. No Jewelry only watches. Hair ties must be for proper use not decoration so watch the ribbons.
Remember first infraction is a warning and the head coach is notified of the infraction. Second violation will result in a disqualification, regardless of which team member violates the rules the second time.
