Bracelet costs California team track title

Dave Wielenga wrote an interesting piece for Sports recently, which you can read by clicking here.

South Pasadena senior Robin Laird landed a 7-foot, 6-inch pole vault jump in the final event of a meet that lifted her team to a victory. Well, at least that's what she thought.

The opposing coach asked for her score to be disqualified because she was wearing a bracelet on her arm, which was in violation of California rules. The complaint was upheld and Laird's jump was disqualified. What looked like a 66-61 victory for South Pasadena became a 65-62 victory for Monrovia.

Some thought the opposing coach was laying in wait, hoping he could use that to disqualify Laird after the jump rather than tell her about the violation before the leap. The Monrovia coach denied that claim.

Anyway, I found it to be an interesting story of morality and rules and regulations.

The Eddy Meet at Union College will be run this Saturday. Does anyone have any stories of disqualifications for jewelry or uniform issues that have cost a local team a meet in recent years?
