Your participation in the sectional is an honor.  Many track athletes in the state do not have the opportunity to run in the sectional and compete for state qualification.  The coaches expect you to stay for the entire meet, regardless of when you finish your event.  Please make arrangements with your parents to stay and cheer on your team until the end of the 4 x 400m relay.

If you are in the lineup, you are expected to be there.
