Catching up with Dublin HS senior, Christopher Middleton-Pearson

Pretty cool interview with one of the best runners in the state. Unfortunately, Chris was sick at Clovis and we didn't get to see his best effort but look for him to be among the top individuals as he leads one of the top boy's teams in the nation, Dublin HS.

California state divisional rankings now posted

Speaking for myself, it was really tough to rank all the teams in the state with so many different courses and with many teams not showing their full lineups yet this season. I think we will get a clearer picture after this Saturday's Clovis and Crystal Springs Invitationals. If you notice any missed teams or see teams that should be placed differently, please feel free to comment in the section below.
