Meet Information: We will run a co-ed Flighted Invitational. Teams may enter 8 athletes into the meet. The coach will designate athletes as #1 – 8. We will run four total races by combining flights (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8). Flights will be co-ed with 2 athletes per team and gender for a total of 40 athletes in a 10 team race (44 athletes for 11 teams). Races will be run based on IHSA recommendations.
Meet Schedule: Each race will begin after the entire race course has been cleared.
- Flight 1 (#7 and 8) – 4:30pm
- Flight 2 (#5 and 6) – 5:00pm
- Flight 3 (#3 and 4) – 5:30pm
- Flight 4 (#1 and 2) – 6:00pm
Note: All flights are Co-Ed. Boys and Girls will start their flight races at the same time.
Scoring: Scores from each of the three flight races will be added together to compute the final score. All flights have the same value. The best possible score is 18 points. In a case of a tie, the finish of the runners in the championship flight will be the tiebreaker. If a team does not have 9 runners, then a ghost runner will be used; however, they must fill in the flights starting with the championship flight.
Score Sheet: Athletes will be given a place card when they finish. We will have athletes writing down finishing places. However, athletes should give this card to their coach. Coaches can enter their athlete’s place on a Google Spreadsheet. Lakes community will add the finish times at the conclusion of the meet.
Results: Results will be posted to athletic.net by Saturday morning and they will be e-mailed to each coach as soon as they are available.
