SPRINTS: 2 heats in preliminary races: 3 fastest runners from each heat/age division will line up to compete in the finals.
MVP: There are extra MVP sheets in the packet for coaches who don’t have one. Remind coaches before meet to have the MVP sheet turned in as soon as possible after all events are completed.
FIELD EVENTS: Remind volunteers to fill in the winners on the bottom of each field sheet before reporting to the scorer’s table.
TIES: There should be no ties. For jumps, the tiebreaker is the next best jump for the 2 athletes in question. For throws, it would be rare for two athletes to throw the exact same distance. Make sure that volunteers are aware of this. For races, the finish line judge will determine the winner.
