However, we will make every effort to guarantee each school gets at least one quality entrant in each running event up to 1600 meters. Entrance does NOT guarantee acceptance. Acceptances will be listed on the PTFCA website on April 24. Medals will be awarded to the top five places in all events. There will be no team score. Also, all coaches will be required to help officiate. This meet will be open to any high school team athlete. The meet will be run by PIAA, National Federation and PTFCA rules.
