2013 MITCA Power Ranking – Week Four
Coaches, fans, athletes and media, here are your week four rankings!
Any program in the top five that is not previously invited is now invited.
Please fill out the questionnaire (see email).
We have had a lot of side discussion with coaches this week about how these are generated (how many teams should score). For the 2013 season it will be just ten teams and thirty places. We can certainly evaluate what to do next year, but the decision is made for the current year.
2013 MITCA Power Ranking – Week Three
This is the ranking for April 30th – we now invite any top four team without an invite already. There was a minor bug in the originally released rankings this week. It mainly affected Belding girls in D3, Brandywine boys in D3 and Reading boys in D4. They all move up on re-calculation. In D1 and D2, no invited team was changed. In D3 boys, West Catholic is bumped to fifth, but they continue to be invited. And in boys D4 White Cloud is bumped back to fifth, but they continue to be invited.
If you are a top four team (or West Catholic or White Cloud boys) then you should fill out the questionnaire — please do NOT if you are not a top four team at this point.
Here are this weeks corrected rankings:
This is your formal invite. Don’t wait around for something more special than this notice — if you are top four, you are invited.
Next week we will invite the top five teams without and invite and the following week we will invite the top 16 D1 programs and the top 12 D2, D3 and D4 Programs. All regional winners are also welcome to attend.
MITCA Power Ranking – Week 2 – 2013
Data has been pulled. This week I will do D1 and D2 first since we went in reverse order last week.
This week any team not in the top three not previously invited is added to the invite list. Congratulations to those top three teams in each division/gender.
2013 COACH OF THE YEAR
One of the most prestigeous awards that MITCA sponsors is the “Coach of the Year” award. As this is a MITCA award, you need to be a CURRENT MITCA MEMBER in order to receive it.
If you registered and paid for the Cross Country clinic in November, or if you registered and paid for the Track & Field clinic in February, then you are a current member.
If you did not attend one of this year’s clinics, then you will need to apply for membership in order to be eligible for COY honors. If your team is doing well this spring and you believe that you are a potential finalist for COY honors this season, YOU MUST BE A MITCA MEMBER BY MAY 1.
Even though the awards banquet will be next year in February, signing up for the 2014 clinic will NOT make you eligible for this year’s award.
If you are not a current member, or if you are not sure, you need to contact the MITCA Treasurer, Jerry Lasceski ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and have your application and payment to him by May 1. Applications after May 1 will not be accepted. If you aren’t sure, then please check.
2013 MITCA Power Ranking Week 1
Power rankings are now underway!
All “ranking meets” on athletic.net will roll forward one week to April 23rd. Entries must be made before 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday. Update your entries (hopefully you had a chance to run again and improve). Don’t forget to update relay seeds as those may not automatically improve like the individual results do.
We will strive to have next weeks rankings out by Thursday at noon.
