If she has a fever she may be contagious, therefore it would be kinder to everyone else to keep her home. But if the fever passes by then leave it up to her.

I'll be crossing my fingers for her, hope she get's miraculously well overnight.

By now, you've made your decision. For what its worth I totally agree with Bog. No child should be doing any strenuous activity(much less around others) until their temp has been normal for 24 hours. She may just have a nasty virus and be fine in a day or 2, but you expose everyone else at this meet to it and she will not be at her top performance.
