Congratulations to all schools who participated in the Regional Competitions last week.  For those schools who have teams advancing to the State Meet, please read all of the following information and utilize the links below for guidence.

A plethora of information can be found on the http://khsaa.org/sports/spring/track/ website under “State Meet Information and Instructions” including maps.  All entries and results can be found under “2013 State/Region meet Entries/Results” tab.

All teams must be dropped off at the Warnock Street side of the field hockey field.  Buses may stop long enough to unload.  Bus parking is at Pap Johns Cardinal Stadium, as is the free parking for cars. 

Team Check In will be on the Warnock Street side of the field hockey field.  Tent City will be on the field hockey.  Coaches will be the only person allowed to pick up team packets.  Please check your team instructions http://khsaa.org/track/statetrackinformation.pdf for time that check ins will begin.  On Saturday, it is very important that the 1A schools be diligent and timely at the end of the meet in order to allow time for the 3A schools to arrive and begin.  The KHSAA staff will be available to help expedite this change over.

Weigh Ins for Throws Implements has been added to the meet time schedule – http://khsaa.org/track/2013/statetrackmeetschedule.pdf.  Implements will be provided for throwers, but athletes may bring their own implements which will require inspection before during the listed inspection times at the throws area.
