Scoring

Races

Awards will be based on the classic-distance races on Jan. 13th and 14th.

Individual Score

Each individual starter shall receive a calculated elapsed time or an incomplete designation (DNF, MP, OT). The time will be converted into a score as described below in the Team Score section. The winning individuals are determined by lowest total score over the day or days competition

Team Score

Scoring for team awards in two Interscholastic Team Categories, School Varsity and JROTC, will be done in accordance with OUSA Interscholastic competition rules as follows:

  • For each interscholastic class, define AWT (the average winning time) as the average of the times of the top three competitors in that class who are competing in a team category.
  • For each competitor in each class with a valid result, their score is computed as 60*(competitor’s time)/ (AWT for the class).
  • For competitors with an OT, MP, DNF or DSQ result, their score will be the larger of 10+60*(course time limit)/ (AWT for the male class) and 10+60*(course time limit)/ (AWT for the female class) for that team category.
  • The best three scores each day for each team are combined for a team score.
  • Lowest overall team score wins.

Calculation and Display of Scores

Scores will be displayed to two decimal places.

  • First – consider the total times. If that fails:
  • Second – consider the positions of the teams Fourth members if available. If that fails:
