I'd say these are accurate.... so far. But rumor has it that De La Salle is about to unleash a few secret weapons that they've been holding back.....

Eureka beats Maria Carrillo twice (Viking and Stanford) and gets ranked two spots lower? What am I missing Albert?

Maria Carrillo girls have lost their top runner due to academic ineligibilty...

once santa rosa gets their top girl runner back, they could be worth watching..

Thank you for your input with Division III.

I have updated the rankings to reflect recent results.

Keep your comments coming folks. With your help, we can figure out where everybody belongs at this point.

Let's just say they're very "impactful".

Hey Albert, I have heard the Healdsburg from Sonoma County has fast runners that will all race at Crystal Springs.

In boys D5, Santa Rosa Christian has a dual meet win over Cardinal Newman(see wild card D4) and was missing their #3 runner at Stanford.

Just added, Piner in Division III boys and Santa Rosa Christian in Division V boys.

Who else is missing in any of the divisions?

Sonoma Academy girls might be one to look out for in DV. Their top 3 girls beat Santa Rosa Christian's first girl yesterday, with their top girl running just over 19:00.

SRV boys are still rolling like a freight train from Hell!

Go monte vista girls! They put on quite a show at their first center meet going 7-0.

saint joseph notre dame beat redwood christian at the mariner invite and they are on the bubble? that doesn't seem right.

Albert Caruana said...

Clearly, Redwood Christian did not have their full team there. They are ranked in the top 3 in the state in Division V and are the best team in Division V in NCS.

Albert, what has happened to Redwood Christian's #3 runner, Mattson? I see his younger brother has moved into their top five, but I have not seen the older brother in their last few races, including the meet in Fremont last Wednesday.

I don't know. Wouldn't be surprising if he is sick.

Campolindo boys beat Las Lomas in a duel meet on october 28th.

Yes, I did see that Campo beat LL in their final league meet. Should be interesting on the boys' side who wins DFAL.
