We are eager to recognize everyone in time but need to give a special nod of respect and admiration to the following 4-yr letter winning seniors that have been ROCKS on this team.

Track hand timing 101:
If the timing system is manual (like HP's button system), all times must be rounded up to the nearest tenth and only recorded in tenths. FAT (fully automatic timing) is recorded to the hundredths. Standard conversion from hand time to FAT is to add .24. As an example, a hand time of 28.01 is rounded up and recorded as 28.1. Converting to FAT makes it 28.34. Something to keep in mind for PR's, qualifying times and what you might be shown at the finish line.
