Since this thread is here, I would like to take the time to say Darlington will be participating in the A-AAAA races at 10:40 at 11:15. We hope other Class A teams will do the same! It is always weird at meets like this when one can never figure out which race teams will compete in.

@aparish Coach Thorn let us vote for which race we wanted to run. So as of today Landmark boys and girls are running in the A-AAAA race. I don't think he'll change that because he wants a 7 hour day there as opposed to the 9 hour day there had we run the Champ. race. Looking forward to racing you guys! -Brandon R

Do schools have the option of moving up or down for their classification races?

@tauger My understanding is that anyone can run in the Championship races, but then otherwise you must be true to your classification.

Yes anyone can run in the Championship races. I would like schools that chose not to run in the Chmapionship races to run in their respective classification. Remember a school can run up in classification, but not down in classification.

With the new schedule and expanded varsity races (from 7 to 10), Darlington's plans are now very much up in the air.

From Coach Robinson: The rationale behind changing the Alexander Asics Invite schedule- I have been bombarded with emails and phone calls about the meet asking if they can run this race or if I would let them run more runners in this race, etc. I altered the schedule to try to please these coaches. If you study the new schedule carefully, you will see that it is not off the previous schedule by much. Each race was backed up 5 to 10 minutes on request of the timing company because our start/finish are about 400 meters apart. I'm sorry for any issues this has caused. I'm just trying to please as many people as possible.
