This is the story of a high school pole vaulter whose successful leap in the last event won the meet and the league championship for her team -- until an opposing coach pointed out she should be disqualified for breaking a rule, reversing the outcome so that his team captured victory and the league title.

The girl's infraction? Wearing a friendship bracelet.

A little petty, but rules are rules. As long as nobody from the other school was doing the same, it is ok. Everyone has to follow all of the rules. I think the fault should be the people running the event. They should have told her to take it off. A nice reminder.

The CIF rule applies to jewelry. Sooooo.... how is a small cloth wrist band any different than a cloth wrist sweat band?

That's a good point. I wonder what it really looked like.

Follow the link and look closely at the picture. It's on her left wrist.

It is a small thin woven cloth strap around her wrist... I wouldn't call it jewelry.
