All athletes earning awards should arrive at the awards stand in some type of school uniform or team t-shirt to represent their team and schoolno hats, etc. This is a PIAA/District 10 awards presentation policy and will be asking all athletes to comply to get them used to how it should be done at the District and State Meets!
Coaches and media can come to the finish line tent at the end of the meet to receive the meet results. If time is available, I can print a sheet with just the times and distances from your athletes. All top 8 results will be sent to a media file covering about 20 plus newspapers, radio stations, and television stations in the District 10 area. The results will also be sent to Don Rich at Penntrack and will be downloaded to the Direct Athletics website. This will be done within an hour of the end of the meet. If you know of anyone else that needs the results, please see me at the finish line tent during the day and I will add them to my list.
