    1. This projects out to November. Right now, even a fast course like Benzie has a 10-15 second differential. South Lyon, I believe I had that rated about 40 seconds than the baseline.

      Early season meets are usually smaller and kids aren’t fully in shape so you’ll get more variance in ratings. I’d expect things to be a bit more clear come mid-September, but Brighton definitely made it seem they can average 16:00 at least.

  1. Right now, I’m not sure what MIS would rate out to. My guess is you’d see about a 30 second differential if there was an invitational there in August. And if that were the case, in that meet, I’d probably gave Brighton at about a 16:25 average.

  2. Interesting. Bill Meylan’s ratings don’t project out to the future so you will see much lower ratings from him earlier in the season. As athletes get into better shape there ratings will improve.

    My one suggestion would be to consider changing your ratings to match his established scale for comparison outside of Michigan.

    1. These don’t necessarily project out into the future so much as account for conditions and training. Ideally, a kid would incrementally improve their numbers as the season goes on or even stay the same.
