Badges!! We need some stinkin' badges!

Reentrant has added badges to the runner’s profile pages. The runner’s profile can be found by clicking on the calculation run (top date on the right column). In the ranking listing, click on the runner to see the runner’s profile page.

We have added two types of badges. The first is performance based, the second is activity based:

Performance badges

There are three levels of performance badges: Expert; Navigator; Pathfinder. To earn the badge, the runner would have to have at least two races on advanced courses (Red, Green, Brown) that exceed the performance standards:

  • Expert (expert badge shown above)
    • 10 min per k - Males
    • 11:15 min per k - Females
  • Navigator
    • 12 min per k - Males
    • 13:30 min per k - Females
  • Pathfinder
    • 15 min per k - Males
    • 17 min per k - Females
Activity Badges

An activity badge will be awarded based on the number of courses run. Badges are by class. A runner would need at least two races in the same class. Badges are awarded at 2+, 5+, 10+, 15+.

We will be adding more badges/medals over the next couple of months.

2017-11-07 Added NJROTC Pirate Classic splits. The individual and high school power rankings have been updated.

2017-10-07 Welcome to the initial publication of Reentrant!

Reentrant will provide reporting on Georgia high school orienteering, as well as individual and school rankings for Georgia high schools.

Individual ranking calculations use high school results only. Individual ranking calculations will be done for Green, Orange, Brown and Yellow courses. GOAC club results will only be included if there are at least three high school results on that course.

Our initial rankings include the results for the NJROTC Mountain Madness, GAOC Red Top and GAOC Richard B Russell meets.

The individual rankings can be accessed by clicking on the date under the “HS Rankings” column. Split analysis and High School Power Rankings are at the top of the links column.

If anyone would like to submit a news article or submit results to be included in our rankings, please send them to news@reentrant.fit.

Power Ranking Method

A school’s ‘Power’ ranking is the combined score of the school’s top 5 runners in each category: Varsity, Junior Varsity and Intermediate.

High School ranking scores are normalized by course and gender. The average of the top 10% (minimum of 2) of the runners is set to 100. The runners scores are then normalized to the calculated 100 score.

Varsity

A school's top 5 ranking scores on Green or Brown (girls results only). If a runner has ranking scores on multiple courses, only their highest score is included.

Junior Varsity

A school's top 5 ranking scores on Orange. A runner cannot be included in Junior Varsity if they are included in the Varsity rankings.

Intermediate

A school’s top 5 ranking scores on Yellow. A runner cannot be included in Intermediate if they are included in the Varsity or Junior Varsity rankings.
