(To be updated later for 2004-05 season)

            This packet contains Section V Championship information.  Please read this information carefully.  Entries received not using the proper format may be rejected.


2004 Meets:   Class C, Friday, February 13 – University of Rochester – 6:00 – 11:30
                Classes A,B,& D: Saturday, February 14 – Hobart – 3:00 – 11:00


            All individuals are eligible according to NYSPHSAA rules, Section V rules, and the meet standards.  The state rule for Sectional and State competition is that an athlete must have competed in SIX meets.  If your athlete does not meet this requirement, he/she must apply for an hardship entry.  A letter explaining the hardship must be submitted, including the number of meets the athlete has competed in, and explaining why the athlete did not compete in the minimum number of meets.  If it is a medical reason, documentation will help.  IF AN ATHLETE HAS ONLY 5 MEETS DUE TO THE CANCELLATION OF THE MEET ON JANUARY 16, HE/SHE WILL BE CONSIDERED TO BE IN SIX MEETS.  HOWEVER – A NOTE TO THIS EFFECT MUST ACCOMPANY YOUR ENTRY.


MEET STANDARDS:  These must have been met during the current season.  There are two kinds of qualifying standards.  An athlete who has obtained an automatic qualifying standard in an event will be guaranteed a place in that event, if he/she decides to do it.  A provisional qualifier may be entered into the meet, and may compete if there is room in the event.  See the accompanying sheet for qualifying standards.


            In addition, each school is allowed one boy and one girl wildcard.  A wildcard is an athlete who has not made the standard in an individual event, and you want to see this athlete compete.  A wildcard entry will NOT displace a automatic or provisional qualifier, and will not add athletes to an event beyond the maximum number.  The wildcard is allowed one individual event, and the athlete must have competed in that event during the season, and meet all other requirements.



            All entries must be on the entry sheet provided, and submitted online on the form provided.


            An athlete needs to have done the event once to be entered, and must have met the qualifying standard.


            An athlete should have each event he/she intends to compete in marked on the entry sheet.  This means INDIVIDUAL  and RELAY teams.  The exact relay is required. (You may list up to six names per relay)

All entries are considered final after 6:00 p.m. on WEDNESDAY, February 11 at 6:00 (SEEDING MEETING AT AQUINAS – ALL COACHES ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND)  ON LINE ENTRIES ARE DUE BY TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10 AT 6:00. Anyone wishing to scratch an athlete from an event must do so by that time.  Any athlete failing to compete in an event for which he/she has been finally declared will be scratched from the remainder of the meet.
