*** REMINDER- Coaches please read: athletes by rule cannot warm up at a field event without an official present.  Once a field event concludes that venue is closed and NO FURTHER throws or jumps.  If an athlete violates this, they can possibly be DQ'd from the event even if the event has concluded.

Once the meet begins, NO athlete will be allowed on the infield.  ALL Warm ups will be outside the track area.  Coaches, please do not put us in a position to DQ an athlete in a restricted area.  Please make sure your athletes stay out of the infield once the running events begin.  Exceptions will be LHS athletes since their coaches are working and these athletes will be moving blocks, hurdles, etc.
