She doesn't have her poles, but I am sure with 27 other girls jumping, someone will have something she can borrow if needed.
Since she was let into the meet Thursday night I do not think it would be a NCAA violation anymore if the team paid for it. Even if she has been DQd, she is still part of the meet, and has the right to protest, which is still part of the meet. Schools take athletes to meets all the time that get DQd or miss sign ups for their events and get scratched out of everything. USATF almost welcomes protest now as even with false start rules you can still get in the blocks and run under protest.
