Looking for some clarification on this year's CIF finals HJ competitions. The playoff bulletin shows the girls and boys pole vault using separate runways and gives specific start times for each division. The high jump shows boys followed by girls with no specific start times for divisions.

For the HJ this year, are we going back to the way it was done in the past - having one competition for boys and one for girls with all 36 competitors, and sorting out the divisional scoring when everything is completed? If so, how will this impact qualifying for the masters meet? Will there be 12 qualifiers only with jump-offs if needed for the 12th spot, or will anyone who ties the 12th best mark, regardless of number of misses, be moved on to the masters meet?
