If more than two athletes scratch from a given event for CIF SS Finals, does CIF allow for more than two alternates to fill the vacant spots so that a full field of 9 can run.

Specifically, if I have an athlete who was 12th on time at the prelims, and 3 or 4 athletes scratch from the event for finals, does he have a chance to compete at the finals?

Thanks for any help with this.
