Thanks to all for attending. The ground was a little slippery and some people came out of the woods looking like they had a great time playing in the mud.

Results in the links below are shown by division for the Jr. Champs and by course for the Shamrock Hunt in three formats for each: a standard result list, split times, and chip data. The "mp" (mis-punch) returned by the electronic timing system indicates the course was not completed, or not completed in the correct time order, starting from control 1 to the end.

In the Middle School/Jr. High Individual Division, the St. Peter in Chains School's Eli Schweinfest edged out the Miami Valley Young Marines team, earning a medal for the fastest time, but the Miami Valley Young Marines captured the Division's large traveling team trophy.

In the Rookie Individual Division Union County Middle School's triumphant trio Mahlon Page, Jordan Hertel, and Eric Porter swept the top three spots, capturing the large traveling trophy. Mahlon Page earned top honors in the division, posting the fastest time, and then went out to collect some controls after the event to get some more experience. Awesome!

In the JV Individual Division Union County Middle School's team of Luke Bantz, Nate Burress, & Skyler Hertel, won the division over the 2nd place Miami Valley Young Marines team and captured the large traveling trophy. Luke Bantz ran the quickest on this course.

In the Varsity Division, Union County High School's Dylan Poe,James Reeder, Alex Yancey, & Nathan Bantz swept the division, with Dylan Poe recording the best time.

In the Rookie Cooperative Division, Fairborn High School's Robinson, Cheadle, Bowman, & L-W; and Slonaker, Hart, Pico, & Collick captured the division.

The Splits report shows time spent traveling between each control. For each competitor, the first row shows cummulative time, and the second row shows each leg's split time. Leading times are in blue. - For example, in the Middle/Jr. HS Individual Division, Andre Barker started out leading with a great first leg time of 0:15. Then Troy Murphy's 3:07 split on leg 2 brought him into the lead, now with a cummulative time of 3:27. Eli Schweinfest also had a 3:07 second leg split, but took longer on the first leg, so at that point Eli was in second. That changed starting with the third leg where Eli posted a split of 4:49 to move into first. From there he maintained the posting of more leading split times than hot-on-his-tail Troy to stay in first overall, all the way to the end.

The Chip Data report is the raw data from the computer chip inside the SI cards (finger sticks). It shows the start time of day (standard time), finish time of day, elapsed time (bold), and download time of day (Read at). It also shows each control number punched and the time of day it was visited. This shows where people were and when, as they traveled around their course.

The Winsplits files can be read by Winsplits Pro. This program has extensive split time analyses including a graphic head-to-head race on screen, as if there were a mass start. Ask me to show it to you on the MVOC computer at your next event, especially for the Shamrock Hunt Expert class.
