McCullough-Douglass Invitational

Date: March 27-28, 2020.

Where: Tiger Stadium @ Festus R-6 Campus


Field events start at 9:00 am and running events will start at 10:30 am.

A brief coaches meeting will begin at 8:15 am outside the storage garage near the finish line. You will be allowed to make only scratches at this time, no additions.

Awards: Top 3 finishers in each individual event and top 3 relay teams will receive a tee shirt. Tee shirts MUST be picked up at the storage shed near the finish line on the day of the meet, prior to leaving. We will not send them through the mail. We will, as always, have a variety of colors and sizes. There will be plaques given to the 1st place team in each division (Men and Womens).

Entries/Timing. Teams will be allowed to enter 2 athletes and 2 relays per event. All entries must be entered on by 10 p.m. on March 26. Timing will be done by Championship Timing. You may enter 3 athletes in the 110/100 hurdles, 100m dash, 400m dash, 300m hurdles, and 200m dash. This combined with the two relay entries should allow for you to get some early season times on your athletes and only adding a few minutes to the meet.

Scoring: 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1

Surface: 8 Lane rubberized track. We allow 3/16 spikes on the track. Please ensure that your athletes are using these prior to competition. Absolutely no tape on the Track or Turf.

Seeding: Heats/Flights will be seeded by time and distances entered.
