Does anyone know what the rule is here? Of course, indoors and outdoors are different because of the nature of the indoor track and the limited number of slots in a section (versus eight outdoors).

The live results page already lists what teams are in what heat, so I guess they're not gonna change it.

That is irrelevant if the rule is not the rule that you are assuming. The fact that the listing shows a plan that cannot at this point make the adjustments that are made in some championship meets does not mean that the adjustments cannot be made. i will guarantee you that if you go look at some meets, for instance the Big Ten last May, you will see that they live results page listed teams in the 4x400 sections that were not the way the 4x400 sections were finally run. Note, this really only applies to the 4x400.

Big 10 is the one conference I'm aware of which runs its 4x400 final in the manner you're describing.

And for next year they've recruited Haley Crouser.

It should further be noted that Haley is planning to compete in the multis (she's a great hurdler as well as javelin thrower). Prandini and the Monteverde sisters are young but talented in the LJ (Prandini was the national champ in 2011), Alyssa Monteverde has been injured but will compete in the mults and Anginae Monteverde was third nationally in the HS PV in 2011, so the prospects look good. Sure missing Brianne Theisen's automatic 10 points this year, not to mention the half dozen points Gergel (PV) and Youngblood (LJ) were always good for.

Good point; Prandini made the final in the w60, but her best event may well be the LJ.
