ENTRIES: Every school will be allowed to enter 1 relay team in each of the 3 races. For seeding purposes, we are asking for a projected time for each of the three relays, keeping in mind the athletes who will be competing. We want to have heats between teams so that they are as competitive as possible and so that ALL teams can run their fastest times against similar competition. We are just asking that all coaches be realistic rather than wishful in determining your seed times.
