Meet Information

Coaches,
Please read the information below concerning the 4A Eastern Regional Championships:

Due to an issue with the Reid Ross Track Facility in Fayetteville, the NCHSAA 4A Eastern Regional is being moved to John T. Hoggard High School in Wilmington.

Hoggard HS will assume the role of "host", while Jesse L. Autry (South View) will still serve as Meet Director. Network Timing, Inc. will be handling the FAT timing of this meet.

Anyone who may be interested in helping run certain field events, please contact me.

Detailed information on entries, times-to-know, parking, events, and more is listed below.

If you have any questions (other than "Why has the meet been moved?), please email Jesse L. Autry at coachjesseautry@yahoo.com.

• Athlete Check-In:
o Athletes need to report to the check in tent prepared to compete. If an athlete has an illegal uniform, they will be informed of what is wrong and how to correct it. That will count as their warning.
