This article is from the Lure Coursing FAQ, by Bonnie Dalzell with numerous contributions by others.
The hounds are scored on a scale of 0 to 50. There are 5 categories
each of equal value:
* Speed (10)
* Agility (10)
* Endurance (10)
* Overall Ability (10)
* Follow (10)
The judge(s) score the hound in each category producing a score
between 0 and 50. Qualifying is 25 or above. Most judges score
qualifying runs somewhere between 30 and 40 points. On a given day the
exact numeric score is less important than the hound's score relative
to the other hounds.
