Monte Vista (NCS) Boys,

should AT LEAST be in the Honorable mention.

Connor said...

Agreed.

I feel like being rated 2nd in NCS (you said it yourself, we beat Amador without number 1 runner, and at Nike without 2 runner)

I feel like were not getting any love, lol.

Trust me, there are many teams that feel like they should be on the Norcal list as well.

Let's see how things shake out after Stanford. It should be easier (hopefully) to line up all the teams that go head to head on the same course.

Get ready to change your rankings, since LLHS showed they have a secret weapon in Soph Michael Gemar, to go along with Drosky, junior Jamieson, and sophs Harper and Green, as well as Frosh Carl Gracely. Gemar's 16:00, just 5 seconds behind Attarian's loss to Drosky (15:54) and 15s ahead of perennial #2 man Jamieson, plus Green's emergence (just 9s behind Earlybird Soph winner Harper) makes LL's pack scary-tight, at 43s from 1-5, with Gracely just getting used to the 3 mile distance, after a 2d at Earlybird, almost catching sub-4:40 8th grade miler who won the race. They are Stanford Saturday.
