   vault. Only when one competitor remains in the competition may the
   competitor determine successive heights of the crossbar.



J. Throwing Implements: All throwing implements shall be weighed and checked
   before competition begins. The host school will determine the time and site
   for weigh in. Implements not approved should be impounded during
   competition and may be picked up after the completion of the field events.

       Boys Shot     12-lbs.                      Boys Discus 3-lbs., 9 oz. (1.6 kg)
       Girls Shot    8-lbs., 13 oz. (4 kg)        Girls Discus 2-lbs., 3.27 oz. (1 kg)

K. Order of Competition for Field Events: The order in which participants will
   take their trails in all field events shall be reverse of the best entry or
   performance in the previous meet, i.e., the contestant having the best entry or
   performance shall be last in order.

L. Number of Trials: In the long jump, triple jump, shot and discus the number of
   trials shall be:

   1. Division Meets: Each competitor shall receive 3 preliminary trials with the
      competitors qualifying for the finals receiving 3 additional trials. The
      number of competitors to qualify for the finals shall be one more than the
      number of scoring places, i.e. if 6 places score, there will be 7 finalists. In
      the finals the order of competition shall be in the reverse order of the best
      performance in the preliminaries, so that the best qualifier will compete
      last.

   2. Region, North/South Mississippi and State Meets: Each competitor shall
      receive 6 trials.

M. Competition and Warm-Up Areas: Coaches and athletes should confine
   themselves to assigned areas. A warm up area should be available away
   from the start-finish lines, officiating posts or in front of the spectator stands.
   All field event areas, including runways and throwing areas, must be kept
   completely clear of spectators, coaches, and participants not competing in
   that event.

N. Timing Procedures: It is highly recommended that a Fully Automatic Timing
   (F.A.T.) System (Pyro-Flash, Finishlynx, Accu-Track, etc.) be used for timing
   and determining places. Finish judges/timers are not required when using a
   F.A.T. system. If a F.A.T. system is not available than a video system shall
   be used to assist the finish judges/timers in determining places. When using
   the Hy-Tek Meet Software all places must be timed!!! If possible two or three
   timers should time first place. All times of qualifying places in Division,
   Region and North and South Meets shall be recorded.

   The official time of a race starts with the flash from a pistol. When using 3
   watches, if 2 watches agree and the third disagrees, the time indicated by the
   two is considered the official time. If all 3 watches disagree, the time
   indicated by the watch showing the middle time is official. When only 2
   watches record a winning time, the slower time shall be recorded. All hand
         times must be recorded with seconds rounded up to the next tenth (10.62 will
         be recorded as 10.7). When fully automatic timing is used, times will be
         recorded in one-hundredths (1/100) of a second.


      O. Finish Judges: There shall be a Head Finish Judge to view the finish of each
         race as a whole. The timers shall double as Finish Judges. A video system
         shall be used to assist in determining places. Finish Judges are not
         required when using a F.A.T. system.

      P. Inspectors:

         1. Division and Region Meets: There shall be at least 1 curve judge in each
            curve for all lap races. In relay events there shall be 1 exchange zone
            judge in each exchange.

         2. North and South and State Meets: There shall be at least 2 curve judges
            in each curve for all lap races. In relay events there shall be 2 exchange
            zone judges in each exchange.

      Q. EVENT RESULTS: EVENT RESULTS SHOULD BE POSTED WITHIN TEN
         (10) MINUTES FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF THE EVENT. IT IS
         IMPERATIVE THAT COACHES AND ATHLETES LEAVE A MEET
         KNOWING WHO HAS QUALIFIED FOR THE NEXT COMPETION!

      R. It is highly recommended that the 1600-Meter Relay be run with a 3-curve
         stagger.

      S. Athlete Introduction: It is highly recommended that all athletes in each event
         (track and field) be introduced at the beginning of their competition.

      T. Award Ceremony: It is highly recommended that the top finishers in each
         event be recognized when receiving their awards. This may be done in a
         special designated area or by placing the athletes on an award stand. This
         ceremony should be highly visible to all spectators.

      A. Division Meets: As determined by each district.

      B. Region Meets: As determined by the MHSAA.

      C. North and South Mississippi and State Meets: As determined by the MHSAA.


X.    Seeding and Heating

       The Hy-Tek Meet Manager software program will do all seeding and heating.
      The Division Meet Directors will enter all information into the computer and then
      seed the meet. Region, North/South, and State Meet Directors will be sent TCL
      files with the qualifiers. After these files have been imported the meet director
      will seed the meet.
      Region, North/South Mississippi, and State Meet lane assignments shall be
      based solely on times from the previous qualifying meets.

XI.   Appeals Process
