Palo Alto boys and St. Francis boys should be mentioned.

Albert Caruana said...

Palo Alto is already listed. St. Francis should be up there as well and I am sure they will make the next list when the next rankings come out following the Stanford Invitational.

Amador Valley will be better than last years team, which makes it a little surprising there not in the top 10. they are one of the deepest teams in nor cal, even if they do lack a clear front runner.

Is St. Ignatius really deserving of the #10 spot?

Diana George ranked #9?!?!?!?!

Albert Caruana said...

Keep the comments coming! That's the list I put out there today and I have no problem being proven wrong.

This weekend's races should clear up a few things.

Parent said...

I would like to say good luck to everybody this season!

Watch out for Jacque, she running faster then ever. Viking should be fun to watch!!

GO CASA!!

i think that Wyatt Landrum should be ranked alittle higher, but we'll see

Who is Sterling Lockert? Ive never even herd of that guy. Why is he number 4? Seriously who is that guy?

Sterling Lockert:
15:57 at state last year
4:16 1600
9:29 3200

Why is MacQuitty number 2?

He still gets tons of credit for his CCS win in the 2mile his freshman year, but after watching him last year in track i wasn't impressed.

As much as I love STMary, I can't see them coming in ahead of Carondolet

Its good you have no problem being proven wrong because with those rankings you will be.

Erik said...

I definitely thin Sterling should be at least fourth. Actually, i think he and Wyatt should move up to #2 and #3. There may be a little bias in this comment but i have raced them before and i consider them as runners that can race in the front pack at state

Sterling Lockert said...

haha. erik, you just know if i move up that means you move up. I heard about the times you were throwing down on that sand. Insane. You've got me worried. I'm very very excited about the show down we're gonna be havin' at NCS. Should be epic. Keep it up stud

Anonymous said...

Wyatt should be ahead of Sterling based on the fact that Wyatt ran 15:09 at NCS 15:47 at state and 9:11 at NCS MOC in track and then 9:15 at the state meet in track. Where as Sterling only ran 4:16 and 15:24 at NCS and 15:57 at state. Sterling is a great runner, but has not improved as much as Wyatt has. I do agree however that Sterling should be at least ranked in the top 3. Go NCS!!!!

ED SIAS is going to be insane tommorrow. Some of the top teams and indivduals in NCS and Northern Califorina are going to be dukeing it out tommorrow.

St. Ignatius should be up there. They deserve it. It is just too bad they aren't deep this year. Their 4 and 5 guys really hurt them. They could really move up otherwise. They are still a great team though. But, if you want to talk about depth Bellarmine is your team. Their JV can break 84:30 as a team time at Crystal this year. That is good enough to qualify a Varsity team for CCS Finals. Lastly, even though Mountain View is way up there you have to watch out for them. They can get a lot better and I don't think anyone is really sure just how good they are and can be. This should be a great season. Watch for SI, Bell, Willow Glen, and St. Francis to really battle it out.

P.S.
Anyone know what is up with Chris Pedro from Carlmont this year? I don't think he is even on the team?

P.S.S.
Brissinger from SI ran 860 miles this summer. WOW!

Sirvasq said...

Landrum looked dominant in setting the record at Sias. People have to understand he's going to threaten sub-9 this year.

Anonymous said...

Landrum looked like a stright up baller out there today. 9:55 is amazimg. Sterling Lockert, Robert Pulford, Steve Inglehart, Austin Synder, Mike Rodick. All looked very impressive and should be put on the top 10 indivdual list or at least put on the honerable mention list.

Doug W said...

Wyatt Landrum should hands down be #1 right now. Coming off of last year's campaign this guy is going to turn a lot of heads come the championship part of the season. Watch out Southern Section.

Anonymous said...

Maybe winning Ed Sias without their number 2 runner healthy will send a message that Monte Vista is here for a repeat.

Anonymous said...

I don't think Willow Glen has the depth to deserve that spot. And why is Parker Schuh ahead of Rylan Hunt and Tyre Johnson? His time at Earlybird was impressive, but you have to take into accout that it was much cooler for his race than it was for the senior race. Also, I he barely broke ten in track last year. He'll be good, but I think top ten is a little too high.

Anonymous said...

yeah if you look at points
Bellarmine beat Aptos and Willow glen for the team title. For some reason the meet was run different and was based upon team times. I dont think thats done anywhere. Stanford should be the meet to see if all these team rankings are true.

Billy the Kid said...

No offense to Petaluma and others but I really think people aren't getting just how good Mountain View boys are going to be this year. Mountain View should be ranked number one here and they'll be top five in the entire state (all divisions) come November. They've been dominating while running only one or two of their top three.

Also, Parker Shuh (MV) just topped the field again, this time at Lowell, beating Rylan Hunt amongst others. Still think he doesn't belong?

Anonymous said...

I agree with Billy the Kid. Mt. View is going to dominate in both boys and girls. After the showing at Stanford, the girls should definitely be ranked #1 over St. Ignatius.

Can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out.

Anonymous said...

Aptos girls only get an honorable mention? They scored higher than Carlmont at Lowell Invitational (with Carlmont running all of the top runners except Hayley Pascale.. but I don't know what's up with her). They also ran well at Stanford.

I challenge Sterling Lockert to a race.
