NFHS  - Points of Emphasis - Pre-Meet Notes 2018-



RWTL ALL-LEAGUE: Girls - Boys - Congrats!
(From League-only meets prior to Sectionals)

 New- ALL-TIME LISTS: Coach Yen, with the help of a few other coaches,  has started to compile Indoor "all-time" lists for Boys and Girls from sanctioned HS meets. The ultimate goal is to get to the top 10-15 for our standard events.  The committee will decide on any conversions. Prior to 1980, most races were yards. (ex. John Tuttle in 1977 ran 2:14.2 1000y, 1000m is 1093.61y).The initial lists are linked here:  Girls - Boys -

RELAY ENTRIES BUG: Unfortunately, Clicking the X to remove a relay from the Entries List removes all relay teams from that event. To remove a relay team (like D) without removing others (A,B,C), simply "Make Entries", select that relay event, then remove the time from that relay (D) and then save. Team D is now gone and A,B,C remain.

  COACHES' LEADERBOARD NOTE - In the Sprint races especially, it is most important that all coaches are on the same wave length when making leader entries. This is the process: 100m - kid runs 11.52 hand time which rounds up to 11.6, then click the hand time box which adds .24 sec for a converted FAT time of 11.84 (always ends in a 4). Why did I round up??? Hand times should not be measured in hundredths. Because all coaches and officials are not going to be right on the gun and the finish every time. The start is always late (by at least .24) and without the camera, the click at the line is not always accurate.  Bottom line: all non-FAT times need to be rounded up with .24 added on.  Thanks!  Dave Y.

Wellsville Track & Field is looking for interested teams for the following dates: April 24th & May 1st.
Meets will be in Wellsville with FAT timing available

2016 Summer Series

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

7 Summer Series Records Broken

Tuesday night track meets in Rochester have been going on since the 60’s, and this summer at the Max Velocity Tuesday Night Series there were 7 records broken.  (at least, correct me if I’m wrong)  Remember, records broken this summer are the best performances of 50 summers of athletes competing in this series.

Sammy Watson came home from Olympic Trials and broke Penny O’Brien’s 30-year-old 600m record of 1:39.1 from 1985 with Watson’s 1:33.60 on July 12.  (note: Sammy also won the 800 and 4x400 at the World Junior Championships)

Lanae-Tava Thomas long jumped 21-03 to obliterate the record of 18-11.75 set in 2005 by Viktoriya Rybalko.

Aubrianna Lantrip high jumped 5-8 to break the record of 5-6 held jointly by Mackenzie Sturtz from 2012 and Kimberly DePrez from 2003.

Max Gloskey broke the 110m Hurdles 39" (high school boys) record with a 14.48 to break Anthony Clark's 14.66 from 2015.

Alana Morrow tied Jamie McClary’s record from 2008 in the 100m Hurdles of 14.87.

The 55 is a new event and this year Tre’maine Moore ran 6.54 to break Kelly Brown’s record of 6.59 set last year.   Lanae-Tava Thomas ran 7.04 to break her own record of 7.20 from last year.  Stacking these up against the 50m records.  For the guys, Ben James ran a 5.6 ht in 1984 (=5.84 FAT =6.43 for 55) and Chandler Brown ran a 5.89 in 2007 (=6.48 for 55).  For the girls Sametra Kelly ran a 6.45 in 2007 (=7.08 for 55).
