MIAA background checks required for 2015-16

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 track meet in which non-vertical jump field event competitors are being given three preliminary attempts/efforts and then three more in the finals, there is a three-way tie for the last qualifying spot in the finals. How should the tie be broken?
Ruling here next week.
