This week’s area Super Ten for boys’ and girls’ track and field, through last week’s conference meets:

We started this last year. To refresh: It’s a purely mathematical system, and here’s how it works: Using Quik Stats, we score the top 16 area competitors in each event, using the scoring that high-school swimming invitationals score (20-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for individual events, double for relays). A school can score two individuals in an event, and one relay. This will reward teams with depth instead of those with a few individuals.
