Hi! If you're just storing time as number of seconds, you can use the sort function. Here's a quick example to illustrate:
times=[10, 55, 62, 12, 15];
[OrderedTimes ind]=sort(times);
%outputs are as follows:
%OrderedTimes=[10 12 15 55 62];
%ind=[1 4 5 2 3];
You could also store your times as datetime objects and do the same:
[OrderedTimes1 ind1]=sort(times1);
In both cases, the "ind" variable output from the sort function will give you the indicies you need to pull out any other player info you need for the ranking (e.g., the player name of the second place winner could be found with names(ind(2)) )
