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

Erica Ellis, freshman, of  Gates-Chili broke the Section V record in the pole vault with a state leading vault of 12’8”.  The record was last set by Karmen Auble of Warsaw at this same meet three years ago. 

The Glavin Races are the premier invitational 3000/3200 in Western New York and they were thrilling as always.  Jessica Lawson of Corning ran the 3rd fastest time in the nation with a 9:30.17 for the win.  The top Section V runner was Amanda Vestri of Webster Thomas in 3rd at 9:57.64. Thirteen girls ran below 10:35.

Chima Dingba of Greece Athena set a SVSB in the 100 Hurdles at 15.42 (NYS21)

Many athletes came from outside of Section V but none more spectacular than Sam Wray of Starpoint who threw the discus 191-02 for the top throw in the state and 19th best in the nation.  

The throwers from Buffalo weren’t even done there, as Colin Blair of Lancaster threw the shot 62-00.
