The same school also had extremely small pits, maybe 3 feet sideways and back from the coach's box and MAYBE 2 feet tall. They are easily the smallest pits I have ever seen and I was a little afraid to jump on them (especially since they wouldn't move the pits from headwind to tail wind, even when we offered to do it for them\ opposing school!).
The high school rule book is really clear that the base pads have to be covered, the penalty for this is the host school is not supposed to host the event and they have to split the points among the other schools.
