Meet Information

Meet Full!
Dear Cross Country Coaches,
Galveston Ball will be hosting its scholastic cross country meet on Friday, September 7, 2018.
The entry fee will be $75.00 per team, per gender. ($150.00 for both)
There will be two divisions: Division I will be composed of stronger 5A/6A schools. Division II
will consist of smaller schools and other large school. If you have a preference, please let me know
early. Both divisions will be divided equally. The course will be on the beach 95 -100 % on packed
sand. We will send a map with details as time gets closer. All timing will be done electronically this
year.
At least 5 student-athletes from the same school must be entered for a team to be considered for
the team title. There will be a limit of 7 - 10 runners per school in each varsity division. This should
help lighten the JV races. All varsity races will be 4 or 5K. This will be determined by the heat. There is
no limit to the number of runners you may enter in the JV and freshmen divisions. Below is a tentative
time schedule.

7:30 am All Divisions Check-In

8:30 am Division II Varsity Boys
9:00 am Division I Varsity Girls
