Power ranking is completed using Athletic.net.
Each team wishing to be ranked must enter three athletes per event, being careful to not enter an athlete in more than four total events. 4 athletes must be entered for each relay event. If you wish to put an athlete in a relay who has not ran on it yet please substitute their open time with the open time of the athlete you are removing. If a team is found to have entered relay times that are not accurate for the 4 athletes entered, the coach will be contacted and asked to clarify or correct their entries, this is their one(1) warning. If relay times are still incorrect with no clarification the following week, that relay event will not be scored. Coaches are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org if they suspect teams of incorrectly entering relay times.
All times entered must be ACTUAL MEET PERFORMANCES during the 2022 MHSAA season, including indoor performances IF they are at the same distance during the season and while competing on the school team.
There are four different meets on athletic.net — you join the proper one and then enter your athletes the same as you would in any other meet — you do NOT ENTER MEET RESULTS in these meets — you enter the athletes in the meet as ENTRIES using seed times that are appropriate.
The four meets for Power Rankings may be found here:
Meet Links coming soon
DO NOT ENTER RESULTS AS RESULTS, rather enter your athletes in the meet using their best time as their seed time AS AN ENTRY. If you enter results it will affect performance lists, etc., and it will NOT be used for rankings.
The power ranking meets are scored based on THIRTY team scoring (90 individuals and 30 teams).
