My girls' team set a state record in the 1600m Medley Relay yesterday winning state in the process. They were subsequently DQed for a handoff being out of zone. We had evidence that the wrong call was made but the evidence wasn't viewed because of existing rules. Any protest petition costs $50 and then is a written eyewitness account of what transpired. That is all that is considered! (I guess I should have paid $500...) So I have decided to try to create some noise about their issue in hopes that something may change in the future whether that be a rule change or some written acknowledgement of fault on the officials. These girls deserve acknowledgement for their achievement. If this cause resonates with you, please contact Ryan Bishop ([email protected]) Utah High School Athletic Association's representative over track and field and ask why when concrete evidence exists showing a wrong call we still have to support that call. Thanks!
Is this the exchange the team was DQd over?
