Off to the races
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 ruling is published the following week. When you consider the situations, think about both college and high school rules.
Situation: In a multi-team cross country meet, the teams are permitted to enter a maximum of seven runners. Team A, in an attempt to conceal the identity of the seven runners intended to make up its team, placed eight runners at the start line, and when the starting device was fired, seven runners started and the eighth remained behind the start line. Team A finished with the lowest team score. What should the ruling be?
Ruling next week will be here.
