A Team Manager Plea
Coaches - In your Team Manager setup, please use your school as your
Short Name rather than your mascot or your school abbreviation. For
example - I'll use Doddridge County High School - the short name should
be Doddridge, not Bulldogs or DCHS. Hy-Tek uses the Short Name in the
results listing. If you use mascots, a tri-meet between George Washington,
Parkersburg South, and Wheeling Park would have a results listing of nothing
but Patriots. If you use abbreviations, a meet between Hampshire, Hurricane,
and Huntington would have a results listing of nothing but HHS. So, please,
for my sanity, use your school name.
Also, please make sure the names of your athletes are spelled correctly
and that their grade levels are correct. .
Hy-Tek Team Manager Tips
This information is also in the top section of the News & Notes Section in
the Track Pages, but I thought I'd put it here as well. When setting up Team
Manager, please follow these guidelines to make results easy to read.
Use the 4 digit code assigned by the WVSSAC. i.e. 0026. You have to have it this way for the
Full Team Name:
The full name of your school: i.e. Doddridge County HS
Short Team Name:
A shorter name that still makes it obvious: i.e. Doddridge. The only teams I
can think of that need to do something slightly different would Lincoln County
(can't use "Lincoln" because there is also a Lincoln High that should use
Lincoln), and Liberty Harrison, and Liberty
Raleigh who need to add just a little
to differentiate themselves. Do not use an abbreviation like DCHS or a mascot like Bulldogs.
The school abbreviation: i.e. DCHS.
Athlete Grade Levels:
Please make sure you have updated your grade levels from last year.
As always, I'm accepting donations. Please view the Wall of Support for details. Every little bit helps
pay for the site expenses. What I'd ideally like to see happen is for each team to send $1 per athlete
per season ($1 for Track and $1 for Cross Country). That way no one is emptying their pockets much, but
the site is still well-supported.
Submitting Meet Results
I thought I'd put up a reminder about how to submit meet results. Our preferred
method to received results is via E-Mail. The best method is to send me a backup
copy of the meet if you're using Hy-Tek software. Then I can extract all the information
we want. Otherwise, you can E-Mail a text file, a Microsoft Word File, a Microsoft Excel
File, or an HTML file.
