Please note that since the 4 event limit applies, an athletes participation in a subsection relay count as a section event. For example, if an athlete qualifies for the section in 2 events, he/she will be eligible to participate in 2 relays. However, any athlete not qualified in 4 events for the section meet is eligible to compete in relays at the Section Meet.

Section Field Events: Monday, May 14. 10am: Pole Vault Pole Vault for Sectional Finals is to be determined

In all events the top 3 from each subsection will qualify to move on to the section finals plus the next best 10 qualifiers overall for a total of 16 people in all events. The 4 x 800 will advance to Sectional Final May 14.

We will plan to have a business meeting of all coaches about 30 minutes after the FIELD EVENT FINALS on May 14. We will need to determine the site of the 2018 meet and format.

Entries for the Pentathlon and Decathlon (at Franklin Road Academy) ARE DUE BY noon on THURSDAY, APRIL 26. Entries may be made online through Alltraxtiming (link: alltraxtiming.homestead.com/TNMultiEvents.html). There is no extra entry fee for these events. That cost is part of your section fee of $130.00



SUBSECTION ENTRIES ARE DUE BY 11:59 P.M. Central Time on Thursday, MAY 4
. It would be a great idea for you to go ahead and enter or update your team roster on the Tennessee Runner website. The method for entering a new team roster will take some time. Existing rosters just need updating. After you register at tn.milesplit.com for an account, you will have to wait to receive a confirmation e-mail from them before entering your information. If you will establish your roster early, the actual entry process will go much faster. The link at Tn mile split is: tn.milesplit.com/calendar#May . There should be a link for entries on the TSSAA website that will also take you to the registration site.

Athletes may only be in 4 total events (the pentathlon and decathlon do not count in this) in the subsection meet. For example, if an athlete is in 1 field event and 2 individual running events, the athlete may only participate in one relay. He/she may be listed in all 4 relays, but can only participate in one of them. There is an important change this year that affects relays. These meets will be considered 2 separate meets in that if your relay team qualifies for the section meet, you may use any athletes on your team in the section meet relays-as long as they DO NOT violate the 4 event rule at the section meet. In essence, your school is qualifying a relay team and you may use any athletes you wish to use at the section meet... This is the same format that has been used in past years when advancing from the sectional meet to the state meet. Please get your entries in on time or you will be charged a late fee of $25 per day (per TSSAA rules). Any changes that involve a substitution made after the deadline will also be subject to the TSSAA fine of $25 per day. Scratching an athlete from the meet is not subject to a fine. Asking to add an athlete or submit a new name in an individual event will result in the fine.

Entry fee checks are due in by Friday April 27. (Please get your entry fees in on time to avoid us having to collect fees during the meet.) ALL entry fees for the West should be sent in to Brian Harrell, Stratford STEM Magnet High, 1800 Stratford Ave, Nashville TN 37204. Checks should be made out to Stratford Track Field. They should be mailed in time to arrive by April 27. Entry Fees will be $130 per school; ($65 if only a boys or girls team) or $10 per athlete if 6 or fewer athletes. Please have Attn; Brain Harrell on the envelope! ***Please ignore any mention of entry fees on the Tennessee Runner website. They have no record of entry fees, so that information is not accurate.

Thanks,

Brian Harrell
