(Includes Regular-Season Competition)

Boys MHSAA Final Meet Records By Class

Note: All times listed in hundredths are clocked FAT (fully automated timing); times listed in tenths are hand times and have been moved up (per rule) to the next highest tenth. Notable Performances (NP) have been marked where records are too close to call due to conversion from yards to meters. A conversion factor has also been used to "convert" hand-times to their automatic equivalents (0.14 seconds for events over 200 meters and 0.24 for events of 200 meters and less). Legend: w - wind aided; y - event run on a yard track; semi - time run in a semifinal heat. All times were contested on a metric track with FAT unless otherwise noted. Bold items are Finals Meet records, regardless of class/division.
