    Ok, I have a question abut red shirting in college track. A runner gets five years to use up four years of eligibility from what I understand. Does this mean that a runner gets four seasons of cross-country, four seasons of indoor track, and four season of outdoor track? For example if a runner redshirts an indoor track season they are allowed to come back for a fith year of competition but only for the indoor track season?

    Correct. Each of the three sports are separate eligibility-wise.
    There are no strings on me

    But individual conferences enforce stricter rules if they see fit.

    But there are medical exceptions granted to the five-year rule.

    The reason I asked my question is because I just read that Robby Andrews had red-shirted the current NCAA indoor track season. Was this due to injury?

    I have a question about redshirting, and I found this old thread about it by googling "redshirt rules in NCAA".

    In the Payton Jordan meet, Emily Sisson was listed as "unattached", but I heard she's redshirting.

    Question: Is her time eligible for Collegiate lists while a redshirt?
    Or is she eligible only for "USA" lists??

    Yes.
    Re the first question, it should be No, but I know at least one SID who carried a red-shirt mark on the school's all-time list on the reasoning that the person was enrolled. In other words, in spite of best practice, individuals will create lists as they see fit.

    How is it treated if the athlete ends up competing officially that season (i.e., the redshirt is removed)?

    gh you are right some colleges do list these athletes in their marks although I don't think they should since they are not wearing the uniform which seems to be what your view is.

    With that the case then why could Mary Cain set HS records as amateur last year but not this year as a pro? She is still in HS. I think she forfeited her ability to set a HS record when she quit competing in HS competition at the end of her junior XC season. She never again ran a high school race. Same has happened in college and athletes set records but never again ran in college only competition.

    We need to end the double standard

    I don't see that as a double standard at all. There are age-limits in HS that don't exist in college. If one is properly enrolled in school and other-wise fully eligible to be on the team, a decision NOT to be on the team should not invalidate them from breaking a HS record. Turning pro, however, is indeed a different situation, which does (and should) preclude holding a 'scholastic' record.

    A gray area may exist with home-schooled kids who don't compete for any school. A state must vet a HS student's eligibility to compete, so a home-schooled kid doesn't have that 'certification'. Then what?
