The Mackay Athletics Club has an awards structure – which we believe to be fair and rewarding to athletes who participate in events and who also improve on their personal best (PB) results.
The system works on these ideas:
For every event an athlete competes in on Club Competition Days they receive 1 point.
A further point is awarded every time an athlete achieves a personal best performance (PB) i.e. improves on their previous best performance in that event in this season
Please note that our awards system is under review.
If during a club competition day an event is cancelled and no substitute event is arranged for that age group, all those who attended in that age group will receive a point for that cancelled event.. Events in which the athlete is disqualified, will not earn points.
Points will be updated and displayed at each Club Competition day and on our website. Public display of points will cease 4 weeks before the award presentation day. Award winners will be announced on Presentation Day.
Please note that school carnivals and non-ANQ events are not included in the points scoring system (this includes state and national championships).
Member Results explained
The Individual Meet Results report lists the results achieved by each athlete who participated in events at that meet. The list only includes members of M.A.C.
Under each name is the
Mark - The time or distance achieved in that event
Round - F = Final, P = Preliminary
Event - The event number
Mixed - Male & Female compete in the same event or it will display boys/men's/girls/women's
##-## - The age group included for that event
PB Points-The number of points received if achieving a Personal Best for that event for the Season.
Points - The total number of participation points & PB Points earned.
Improv - This column will display if the athlete has improved on a previous attempt at that event during the season.
If the figure is blank (- - -) then their has been no improvement or gain.
If the figure is a negative (-#.##) then this is an improvement in time or distance.
If the figure is a positive (#.##) then this is a gain.
So those with a negative figure are considered a new personal best for that athlete thus will gain a point if applicable.
If an athlete did not attempt an event, it will not show on the report.
If an athlete did attempt an event but failed to finish, this will be displayed as DNF
If an athlete did attempt an event and was disqualified, this will display as DQ
Results are listed in name order and only show Mackay Athletics Club members.
