What's the rule?
So you think you know the rules? Test yourself, thanks to the Professional Development Committee and official Mark Young.
The format is simple. Each week, a new situation is presented below and you can determine if the rule has been correctly applied. The answer is published the following week. When you answer the questions, consider both college and high school rules.
Situation: A1 runs up to the high jump bar but decides at the last moment to abort the attempt. In trying to stop, A1's hand or arm passes beyond the plane of the crossbar and a) touches the landing pit, or b) does not touch anything beyond the plane. What should the result be in each instance?
