The 2012 MITCA Team State Meets will again be a featured event for some of the best D1, D2, D3 and D4 track and field teams.
For 2012 teams can only qualify by either a) winning their regional, or b) being power ranked.
Exact qualifications procedures are subject to committee review and approval at this time, but last year the top power ranked teams and all regional winners were invited. The number invited may be adjusted slightly to perhaps tighten the 2012 field at the D2, D3 and D4 levels.
Power ranking is completed using Athletic.net. You enter three athletes per event being careful to not enter an athlete in more than four total events. All times entered must be ACTUAL MEET PERFORMANCES except that you may deduct the split of an athlete not running the relay from a relay time and substitute a different person in one leg. This is because often your relay may have run with an athlete entered in four other events for the power ranking.
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 using seed times that are appropriate.
T-Shirts and concessions are available at each of the sites. T-shirts are just $12!
At the MITCA Team State Championships, each team enters three athletes in each of the 17 events contested and each and every athlete is scored. Timing and scoring at all three venues will be done by MichianaTiming.com using FinishLynx FAT Cameras with Hytek Meet Management Software. Results will be available in near real time throughout the competition and at the end of the day a state team champion will be crowned in each division.
