***** Conversion of old times used the accepted method published by Track and Field News. Conversion is applied to all hand held times from the 300m by adding .24. Any distance above this does not have a conversion. For races that were in yards and not meters .17 is subtracted from the time to convert. If times could be confirmed as FAT they were NOT converted. If there is a dispute on a record (hand held vs FAT) contact Coach Johnson. Any evidence provided to dispute a Hand Held and/or converted time will be considered.
