MIAA State Divisional Records May 28, 2014

You won’t find these records in your meet program!  Greetings everyone. Listed below is a look at the updated event-records for the Mass. Divisional Meets [formerly the Class Meets] scheduled for May 31 and June 1, 2014. The divisional records, in particular, are a work in progress. The sprints [100, 200] short hurdles and javelin require more research and updating. While hand-times [ht] in the sprints and hurdles are ok to list, it is necessary to unearth the correct FAT [Fully Automatic Times] to present a clear picture of the records. A hand-timed mark should never be converted for purposes of a record. Therefore, a bit more research is needed in this regard. In the boy’s javelin, the D1 and D4 records are with the old javelin. Still looking for the “new” javelin records. Likewise, the girl’s javelin records, D1 and D2, are with the old javelin. These records need to be updated to reflect the “new” javelin. In some cases in the sprints and hurdles it appears hand times may have been rounded out to FAT times. That’s a no, no! Once research is complete, up-to-date accurate records will be posted on MileSplit. National Records and additional research from Jack Shepard, Track & Field News. American Junior Records are those ratified by USATF. Junior Records are restricted to athletes who do not turn 20 at any time during the calendar year in which the mark is made. Eastern Records are those compiled by Eastern Track’s Walt Murphy [wmurphy25@aol.com] and include the states from Maine to Virginia. New England and Mass. records are those compiled by Larry Byrne [ltbyrne1016@verizon.net] and Larry Newman [netrack@aol.com]. p= record pending verification; *** = Freshman, ** = Sophomore, * = Junior. All others are Seniors.
