As long as you run unattached you may compete in the open division.
As a high school athlete you cannot run in a college event when there are also high school divisions (Mt. Sac, Penn Relays, Stanford) or you are disqualified from high school competition. No high school events you are free to compete.
In this girl's case her school is not a part of their State Sports federation thus does not compete in their State track meets. So she is free to compete as an open runner in any event that she likes.
Or so the rules say.
She and her team are not members of the public school assoc., she is still a HS kid and she and her school are members of the exclusive private school assoc., as far as the NCAA is concerned she is still a HS kid.
Thus she must run unattached in any open division. What part do you not understand?
