    - All Sprint Events and Relays: Athletes may be placed in every lane.
    - Distance Events (800, 1600):  Multiple heats may be necessary for middle/long distance events with a large number of runners.  Another efficient way to accommodate a larger number of runners could be through use of a double waterfall or alley start on tracks that are marked appropriately for this.

    For indoor events at Bloomington Junior High (basketball, volleyball and wrestling) we will stream events using Facebook Live.
    Be sure to like and follow:  Facebook.com/district87athletics
