Scoring: For a team to count in the scoring, they must have at least 5 runners finish. The 6 th

with the best 6th place finisher shall prevail. KHSAA tie-breaking rules will be used. Team
results will be available to all coaches.

KHSAA: All athletes and coaches shall follow the rules set forth by the Kentucky High School
Athletic Association, including Middle School.

Entries: There will be unlimited entries in all races! Each Varsity team may enter 10 runners
as the designated official team but must be declared before the race. All "extra" runners get
to count as a race and will be able to earn awards but will not be scored as a second team
or score for the first team. PLEASE declare on your entries the grades of your runners
(necessary for records purposes) and whether they are competing in Elementary School,
Middle School, or Varsity.
