JUDGING: We are working on getting community judges now, as well as college students and South High teachers. Being a new school with a new program, our judging pool is not as deep as others (pun intended) and we are working hard to expand our volunteer judges. We also look forward to using any judges you bring. Our judging requirement is that you bring at least 2 judges who can judge both on Friday and Saturday. You must bring a CX judge if you bring more than one CX team.

Any damage, theft, or other poor behavior will result in our losing the option of using our facility to host meets. Students will NOT be allowed to play basketball or other types of sports games in the gym.
We really look forward to seeing you at our meet!
