A new feature for viewing track and field records was launched today, Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at MySportsResults.com.
A new Records database is available for public viewing that has been developed in association with Griffin Ott to fulfill his senior internship requirements for Darien High School. The program pairs Darien seniors with businesses that allows seniors to experience real world work in their area of interest.
Over the past month Griffin has learned about database design and was instrumental in building the new Records database that will eventually replace the current records now posted in Adobe PDF format.
One of the advantages of the new database is that viewers will be able to more easily locate records of interest across all types of meets and events instead of a single document view.
The database also includes extra information about each record performance that has provided for creation of an interactive state map that displays geo-location of all the records.
Although the current list of records only contains performances from the CIAC Open and Class Outdoor Track & Field meets there will be additional records added including State, Invitational and conference for Indoor as well as Outdoor meets.
