Honest Effort: This was discussed and decided upon at the county meeting- that athletes competing at the county meet should give an honest effort in their racing.

Scoring: Based on one single race in each division.

  • Runners may move up in a division, but not down. Juniors and seniors, not on varsity, must run JV. A freshman may run in a sophomore or JV team to fill out those teams.
  • A maximum of 8 may run in the girls F.S. The remainder must run JV.
  • A team must score in the Varsity to score in the JV race! A team which scores in the JV race, but not in the Varsity, will forfeit the JV score!

Athletes will be given a place card in the chute and will to go to the table with their school’s finish sheet to turn in their card and give their name (or finish sheet number) to the volunteer. If an athlete walks off without turning in their card they will not be in the results. Please have a person or two from your team standing by the chute area in case one of your runners is having difficulty and cannot get to the finish table. Your person can “sub” in for your runner and take their card to the finish table.

Each team’s result sheets will be copied and posted at the “shack” as soon as possible. The entire results for each race will be typed and emailed out to the teams after the meet is complete.
