E. If athletes are submitted to the State Meet in multiple events without the knowledge of whether they would be accepted in any of those events AND with the possibility that they could be accepted in all of the events, the coach must submit an email to Ralph Heiss (rheiss@salesianum.org) and John Amery (jamerusp@aol.com) stating which events they would accept in the event that they are accepted in some or all the events. e.g. An athlete is entered in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m, hoping to get into one of the events. If the athlete is accepted in two or all three of the events and doesn't wish to be in all three, the coach needs to send the email stating what their wishes are for that athlete.
