Greetings NENSA EC racers, coaches, and parents –
The scored race results from USSA are up on NENSA.net (RESULTS tab) for the Quarry Road EC#2 weekend.
Due a problem with the timing, the preliminary results for the sprint qualifiers, put out Saturday morning were incorrect, so the overall (top 30) and the U18/U20 afternoon heats had to be invalidated. Those preliminary qualifier results from Saturday morning, used to populate the open women and open men, and the U18/U20 women and men’s sprint heat brackets for the afternoon races, were incorrectly populated, thus, those afternoon heats results were not valid, and we cannot use the open heats or U18/U20 heats results for JNQ ranking.
Therefore, for JN ranking, we are using the corrected qualifier results for the U18/U20 class.
The U16 heats were correct.
For the seven U16 girls who made the top 30 open heats, they are being scored off their order of finish in the morning qualifier. The remaining U16s girls who made the U16 heats will be scored using their heat results.
The U16 boys will also use their heat results.
The silver lining is, we were able to work with the timer to salvage the correct sprint qualifier results, so they are now valid and correct, and have been scored by USSA for NRL ranking, and by NENSA for JNQ ranking for our U16, U18, U20 racers looking to make the NE JN Team this March.
We apologize for the timing issues at Quarry Road Eastern Cup, and I want you to know that NENSA doing all we can to work with the timers and race organizers, to be sure this does not happen again.
It is our sincere hope, and plan, to have a clean sprint qualifier this coming weekend at Rikert, and valid open, U16 and U18/U20 heats in the afternoon, that we can use for JN qualifying ranking.
