There are 4 ways to Scratch an Athlete or Relay from an Event:

 

1.From the Athlete or Relay Entry Screens

When you choose this method, you may only scratch entries from the 1st round  - that is Prelims in a multi-round event or Finals for a Timed Final event.

Athletes

Click on Athletes then pick the Athlete to scratch.  Now click on the SCR box under the Entries column in the appropriate row for the event.  Or, click on the Scratch All button on the Athletes Tool Bar to scratch the athlete from all events that have not been completed.

Relays

Click on Relays then pick the Relay Event then the Relay Team Entry to scratch. Now click on the SCR box under the Entries column in the appropriate row.

 

2.From the Seed Menu or Seeding Scratch Pad

This option is only available if you wish to scratch an entry from the next Round.  For example, if Prelims have been completed, you can scratch entries from Finals in a 2 round event or from Semis in a 3 round event.

Click on Seeding from the Main menu Bar and then pick an Event, and then click on the Scratch Pad Button. MM will display all the Individual or Relay Entries for that event.  Then click on the Scratch Box next to the Athlete or Relay that you want to Scratch.
You have the option of clicking on the Clear Scratches button if you want to clear all the scratches from the selected event.
You have the option of clicking on the Scratch Back button on the Scratch Pad Menu to scratch all the athletes in the selected event after a certain place.  For example, you may want to scratch back to 24th place in an 8 lane track giving 3 heats to seed and race and include 2 Alternates.  This is usually done when advancing athletes from Regionals or Sectionals for a High School State meet.

4.From the Adjust menu in the Run Screen

Click on the Adjust Button or press the F8 key from the Run Screen and double click any entry on the list and confirm that you wish to Scratch that entry.
