       Cannon School is honored to be the host for the 2009 NCISAA 3A State Track
Meet, May 15 and 16. Russ Campbell, Head Track and Field Coach at Cannon School will
be the NCISAA 3A State Track Meet Director.

        The track at Cannon School is an eight lane urethane/rubber surface. The facility
has two long jump/triple jump pits. This will allow the boys’ and girls’ long jump to be run
at the same time on Friday and the boys’ and girls’ triple jump at the same time on
Saturday. (Please note that the foul line for the long and triple jump will be as follows:
Boys Long Jump 10 feet, Girls Long Jump 10 feet, Boys Triple Jump 32 feet, Girls Triple
Jump 24 feet.)
 For safety reasons, athletes unable to achieve these minimum distances are forbidden to
enter these events. The Discus event will be done on the grass on the inside of the track
using a 34.92-Degree Sector.

* Athletes must wear ¼ inch pyramid spikes or smaller. The shape and size of spikes are
  important for the preservation of the surface of our track.. BRING YOUR OWN SPIKES.
* Participants must stay off the infield except for checking into their event and warm-ups
prior to their event. Once their event is over and they have cooled down, they must leave
the infield area.
* Spectators and horizontal jump participants must stay off the high jump apron to avoid
  interference with that event.
* The lower fields, located outside the track, will be available for warm-ups.
* Tents or gazeboes may be set up for team use outside the track area.
* The concession stand will sell food and drink during the meet.
* There will be a hospitality tent for coaches and officials.

RULES COMMITTEE: The Rules Committee will be made up of coaches from the
Western, Central, and Eastern parts of the state. This committee will address problems and
rules violations that may arise during the meet.

ENTRIES: To be eligible to compete in the NCISAA State Meet each team, team
member, and individual entry must compete in a minimum of (4) meets on (4) separate
dates during the current season. Athletes may compete in a total of 4 events. Each school

may enter a maximum of (3) competitors in each event. *Each competitor must meet the
qualifying standard. Qualifying standards must be earned during the regular season of the
current school year to be eligible for state competition. Please note the changes in entry
information for this year’s meet. If there are any questions, please contact the meet

Automatic qualifiers (AQ) are any athlete who meets the standards. (New for 2009: This
may exceed 3 per team) If a team has no automatic qualifier in an event or chooses not to
enter a qualifier in the event, that team may still enter one non-qualifier (SOLO) in that
event. (every team has the right to be represented) If a team has fewer than three qualified
entries in an event, that team may send in a list of provisional non-qualifiers (PNQ) that
could bring it’s total entries in that event to three. The name of a PNQ must be submitted
by email to the state meet director by the stated deadline, with the athlete’s two best
performances achieved in meets, in case there are ties. All AQ and SOLO entries will be
entered first, with any additional slots to be filled from a ranking of provisional non-
qualifiers. Entry fields: 100-200-400-100H-110H-300H, as they are all run in lanes should
either be three heats of 8 (24) or four heats of 8 (32). Depending on the number of AQ and
SOLO athletes entered will determine the number of PNQ athletes taken. For example, if
there are 23 AQ and 4 SOLO entries (27 total), an extra 5 PNQ entries will be taken to fill
4 heats. If there are 15 AQ and 4 SOLO entries (19 total), 5 PNQ entries will be taken to
fill 3 heats of 8. For the 800-1600-3200 and all field events, if the AQ and SOLO entries is
less than 24, PNQ entries will be taken to make 24 total entries. (Total entries can exceed
24 if the number of AQ and SOLO entries is greater than 24, in which case no additional
PNQ’s will be entered.) If there are fewer than 18 athletes in the 3200, 16 in the 1600, and
14 in the 800, then one heat will be run, otherwise the field will be divided into heats

Procedure for determining PNQ entries will be as follows: After the entry deadline, the
meet director will determine for which events PNQ entries will be needed to fill events.
The director will then go to the ranked list of PNQ entries for those events and choose the
number of entries needed. The meet director will then contact the coaches of the teams for
which PNQ entries have been taken by email. The coach of any PNQ athletes will simply
respond an acknowledgement that those athletes will indeed compete. Any PNQ entry not
responded to compete, will be scratched, and the meet director will simply enter the next
PNQ from the ranked list, notifying the coach as mentioned above. (Hopefully this will be
an unnecessary procedure as coaches should only enter athletes who would intend to

With regards to scoring, any school may only have a maximum of three athletes advance to
the finals of an event run in lanes or in the LJ, TJ, SP and Discus, and only three may score
in any event.

 Note: All Non-qualified entries (PNQ and SOLO) must be e-mailed or faxed directly
to the Meet Director by the deadline to avoid a $25 late fee. No late entry will be
accepted after NOON Thursday.

ENTRY VERIFICATION: Each school’s coach is expected to bring a copy of his/her
meet results. The coach should be prepared to verify any entry time, height, or distance that
is questioned. For convenience, their will be a documentation notebook that will be left in
the coach’s tent. Coaches are encouraged to place their meet results in that book. Any
coach that wishes to inquire about an entry performance should start at the documentation
notebook. Only after checking the notebook should that coach go to an individual coach to
ask about entry performances. A Relay entry performance that cannot be verified will be
listed as “No Time” and seeded accordingly. An individual whose performance cannot be
verified will be removed from the event.

TEAMS: A team will consist of one or more participants that have competed in a
minimum of (4) meets on (4) separate dates during the current season.

coaches and athletes become familiar with the check-in procedure FOR RUNNING
EVENT TRIALS. Athletes will check-in for RUNNING EVENT TRIALS 45 minutes
prior to the event’s scheduled start time. Then 20 minutes prior to the event’s start time the
check-in for that event will close. Athletes that have not checked in will simply be
removed from that event list (Athletes that don’t check-in for running event TRIALS will
still be able to compete in subsequent events). During the 20 minutes prior to the event
start time the athletes that have checked in will be seeded. Athletes who do not compete in
trials after they have checked-in will be INELIGIBLE to compete in subsequent events.
EVENTS: Athletes in running event finals will simply report to the starting line of that
event by the “final call”. This includes first and second day running event FINALS.
Athletes in field events must report directly to the site of those events by the “final call”.

the athlete’s responsibility to check-in at all events he or she is entered in. Athletes in field
events must check with their event official before leaving for a running event. Once the
running event is complete the athlete must return to the field event within 10 minutes to

avoid receiving a pass. Athletes in more than one field event that occur simultaneously
must inform their event officials of the event conflicts. The official will note the conflict.
Once the athlete completes a round at the first field event he or she must inform the official
and then go immediately to the next event and complete a round there before returning to
the first field event. This must continue until the athlete has finished all rounds. Athletes
must be prepared to move back and forth quickly between events.
