ODDS and ENDS

AUTOMATIC TIMES: Times to the hundredth-of-a-second are automatic times. The formula for converting automatic to hand-time equivalent is to deduct 0.24 seconds then to round up to the nearest tenth-of-a-second for 300 meters or shorter and deduct 0.14 seconds then round up for 400 meters. There is no conversion for races longer than the 400.

METERS TO MILES: Metric times are listed inside brackets () and are converted to mile or two-mile equivalent; all other distances are meters

INACCURATE TIMING: Some schools refuse to time races to the tenth-of-a-second. Therefore, those athletes’ times are assumed to be the highest within that second. e.g. at 10:25 time is assumed to be 10:25.9.

CORRECTIONS/ADDITIONS: If you find a mistake in the track honor roll e-mail corrections to mmuldoon@eagletribune.com.

NOTES: An i denotes mark set in indoor track; some girls shot put marks were with 8 lb. shot put, current 4 kilograms (8.8 lbs) shot was adopted in 1984.

MISSING RECORDS: Of the 22 area schools, only Greater Lawrence Tech and Whittier didn’t submit records.
