You may use a season best performance from the 2009-2010 season or a current 2010-2011 Indoor Mark for your entry. For example in the 55m dash & 55m hurdles you may use your season best from 2010 in the 100m dash or 110/100m hurdles as your entry mark if you do not have an Indoor 55m dash or 55m hurdle mark.

Meet management will be verifying entry performance marks to make sure they are accurate and everyone is being honest and to ensure the right athletes are in the proper heats and flights of their event(s). We understand most schools have not run some of these relays; coaches may enter a composite relay entry time based off the four expected athletes running in the relays fitness.
