Check in time for all meets is 12:00 noon.  First race is scheduled for 1:00 PM

The first three meets will be point scoring.  Points are scored for each event (except peewee); 5 pts. for 1st down to 1 pt. for 5th.  The combined scores from all three meets will determine the Diocesan Outdoor Champions.  The presentation of team awards will be performed before the start of the CYO Olympics meet.  The teams will be broken down into an East and West division for the three meets and trophies for the Outdoor Championship will go to the top five teams of each division.  East and West divisions will be determined by size of roster.

EVENTS, AGE DIVISIONS, MEDALS:

Refer to age divisions and events sheet.  The peewee division is a non-scoring division.

Peewee runners can be moved up to novice to make up one relay only and only when there is at least one novice on that team.  All other age division runners can be moved up one division also only to fill a relay event (more than one) and also only when there is at least one runner in the higher age group in that relay.  Runners are not allowed to move up age divisions in individual races with the exception of the boys 800 meter run in the Diocesan Meet which is run for the Warren Scullin Trophy.  Junior boys may move up when it will make for a more competitive trophy race.  In no case may a child participate in more than one event (running or jumping) per meet.

Medals for each event will go to the top five finishers in that event at the first three meets with the exception of the 50 and 100 dashes where there are runners picked for finals; all 6 finalists will receive medals.  At the CYO Olympics, medals will go to the top six finishers in all events.  This will be for relays as well as individual events.  All peewee runners will receive finisher ribbons except at the CYO Olympics where they will receive medals.

There are three special trophy events to be held in the outdoor season.  In the Warren Scullin Championship meet the winner of the novice girls 400 meter run will be presented with the “Winifred Bennett Memorial Trophy” and the winner of the senior boys 800 meter run will be presented with the “Warren Scullin Trophy”.  In the Ray Suarez Memorial Meet the winners of the bantam girls 400 relay will each be presented with the “Ray Suarez Trophy”.  Special medals will be awarded to the 2nd through 5th place individual finishers and relay members in each of these events.

* The 400 medley will be a three-runner relay (200 x 100 x 100) run in 2 sections only, one for any   combination of novices and bantams (e.g. 3 novices, 3 bantams, 2 novices/1 bantam, 2 bantams/1 novice) and a second for any combination of junior and seniors (e.g. 3 juniors, 3 seniors, 2 juniors/1  senior, 2 seniors/1 junior).  This event however will not be a boy/girl combination.

All final results will be based on time where more than one heat is needed except for the 50 and 100 meter dashes where there will be qualifying heats if needed.  We will run the girls followed by the boys in each event.  However when the number of entries allow, boy and girls as well as more than one age division may be combined into the same race (scored separately).  It is the responsibility of each head coach to get your runners to the correct event clerking area for their event.  Each event will have a name placard or sign placed in the area where the clerking will be done.   We will hold a CYO alumni 100 meter dash at the CYO Olympics.  In the case of threatening weather, events will be run as quickly as possible, ahead of schedule if necessary.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Track forms are available and track meet results will be posted on the CYO website.  Go to www.cyodob.org and follow links in “sports” to “track”.

No member of a high school track team is eligible to run in any CYO track meet.

No child is allowed to participate in more than one event (jump or run).

The following races will be run in lanes with a staggered start:

All 200 dashes / all 400 relays / all 400 runs (except novice) / all 600 medley relays – first leg only / all 800 relays – first lap only / all 800 medley relays – first lap only / all 1200 medley relays – first lap only.

All 800 meter runs will be run with a California start, not run in lanes.

The peewee 200 meter relay will not be staggered.

The following is an outline of the long jump procedures:

  • The takeoff area will be any spot on the runway behind the marked scratch line. For the younger age groups, the scratch line may be the actual near edge of the landing pit.  The location of the scratch line for older age groups will be at the discretion of the jump official, always considering the safety of the jumpers first.  When the extent of the takeoff area is marked by a wide painted or taped line, the scratch line is the very edge of that line nearest to the landing pit.
  • The jumps will be measured from the scratch line to the nearest point in the landing pit touched by any part of the jumper. Jump officials will allow jumpers to start at any spot along the runway and will keep jumpers waiting their turn far enough back to allow this.
  • It is a foul if the jumper allows any part of his/her shoe to extend over the scratch line at takeoff. It is also a foul if the jumper runs across the scratch line and does not attempt a jump.  Foul jumps will not be measured.
  • If time allows all jumpers will be allowed one or two practice jumps after their event is set up. The event will then consist of three attempts per jumper.
  • Individual jump results will be determined by comparing each jumper’s best jump. If a tie exists comparing the second best jump of the tied jumpers will break it; if still tied the third best jumps will be compared.
  • Relay jump results will be determined by comparing the sum of the best individual jumps of two relay members. If a tie exists comparing the sum of the second best jumps of the same two relay members from the tied teams will break it.
