Kevin Bishop - 9th in Individual Sweepstakes, 14:50. Should be the top time on the list.

Albert Caruana said...

I did miss Bishop...will fix when I get home.

Dan Milechman ran 14:55 (yesterday, in race 28)
Results from that race haven't been posted yet, but the winner of each race has been posted, and he won his race.

Keep posting the missing runners and their times. Will fix in a moment.

spencer moore SMB 18:16

Race #98 with the College Park girls seems so fast. Was the same course used for this race? There are 3 girls from the same school that ran sub 17!

Once confirmed, I will add the CP girls and the Lodi girls.

Anonymous said...

Those races were simply amazing. That has to be one of the greatest days in that course's history.

Now, what do I think that we have discovered? 1st, Kevin Bishop is a truly elite runner that can challenge almost any competition, including Dominic and Luis in NorCal. 2nd, Campolindo is impressive and moved up in my rankings. 3rd, Bellarmine confirms they are for real and have an amazing spread. However they lack a six man if someone has a bad day or there is an injury. Lastly, no body can overlook Carlmont as their girls have an impressive showing and who knows what their boys are up too. (Did anybody see who was sending off the racers to be introduced?)

What do you guys think the big NorCal stories were?

Any ideas on an acceptable conversion to Crystal Springs from this course?

Albert Caruana said...

Mt. SAC is about 20 seconds faster than the Crystal Springs course.

Albert Caruana said...

The following was posted on Espn RISE.

"Based on what the announcer says as the leader finishes and then from looking at the video, my guess is that adding 74 seconds to each time will be close to correct.

Two odd things: the finish line clock shows the same time as in the results as the leaders finish, and the livestream video has a gap, excluding the start and about 65-70 seconds of the race. Otherwise, one could use the livestream to find the correct times."

Danny Stalters of Northgate (only a sophomore) ran 15:55 in a D2 race. Not sure why NG was entered there; they're a D3 team.

Amazing day at Mt Sac. Anyone have a count on te number of runners under 15:00? Seems like about 3x as many as last year.

Anonymous said...

Bellarmine looks for real, although I don't think a course like Mt.Sac shows their true strength. I think they'd be much more suited on a course like Crystal because there is too much flat and downhill at Mt.Sac. I think a hilly course or even a full 5k will be able to show there strengths of a strong team, not amazingly fast, and an amazing spread. One of the best spreads for a team that good that I've seen in a long time.

Anonymous said...

Wait so we lost 75 seconds of the race somewhere?

It's a conspiracy, man......

Albert Caruana said...

I thought the fast times were a little suspicious with 3 girls from the same school running sub 17 in the same race and nobody slower than 22:30.

Nor Cal Runner said...

They were having problems up until the sweepstakes race. If you noticed results weren't up for a long time and were being written in by hand. Most all are up now except for the freshman girls on Friday and the "sub 17" race.

As for Berllarmine, they are the real deal. Carlmont girls looked real good down there as did SLV and Los Gatos!

I think Mt. Sac is one of the hardest courses in High School. The first mile is great...very fast. The last two miles are harder than anything I have seen. The hills are steep on the way up and down. You never get back on the downhill what you lose on the way up...and certainly not when it is that steep coming down (think Camel humps at Toro but steeper and two other times at the 1 mile, 1.6 mile, and 2.3 mile marks. The thing that makes Mt. Sac so fast is the depth of the races. Think Aracadia. Why do so many people run fast there, the quality of the field. I would love to see what all these schools would do at Crystal. We would see course records much more often for sure!

The real reasons that this course is fast are as follows:
1. It is only 2.91 miles.
2. Aside from the three uphills, most of the course downhill or flat. And the downhills are not steep but rather are gradual.
3. The course is exceptionally well groomed with excellent footing, wide all the way along, no sudden turns or corners, and clearly marked.
4. Yes, the fields are fast and that makes it a faster course.
5. It is not that hard.

Marty said...

Just a minor point, Peter, the Mt. SAC folks say that the course is 2.93, a whopping 35 yards more than the 2.91 you note: http://events.mtsac.edu/ccinvite/coursemisconceptions.htm

Then again, I have never been there, so maybe they changed something this year?

BTW, has anyone accumulated all of the times into one massive imaginary meet? Seems like someone will often do that for these big invitationals - I enjoy seeing that kind of thing, and would do it myself, but the pdf files posted on the Mt. SAC site won't allow copying and pasting. Could be "operator error," but it would be cool to see that....

I thought they consolidated the times in the past - to have best seniors, juniors, sophs, fresh. and overall teams. They seem to be a little slow this year.

mike said...

We can do a lot of this with XCStats.

Let me know what you would like and I'll see if we can do it.

Marty said...

Mike, Basically, what "anonymous" said immediately above is what I like to see. Specifically, what I would do if I had all of the results in a spreadsheet, is I would put all of the runners (with separate boys and girls) together and score boys and girls as one gigantic meet each. I would also separate out the schools by division and do the same thing. I'm not all that interested in separating out by class, but I would imagine lots of the runners would enjoy seeing that ("Hey, look, I was the 347th fastest freshman in the meet!")....

QUALITY OF THE VIDEOS? Doesn't even show you the winners. You see the beginning and then a 2nd shot at some point in the race and that's it. It doesn't even show you the finish line..at least the races i was looking it from Friday. Am I looking at this correctly? So pathetic are the videos.

mike said...

Marty - I'll do one big race for the boys and girls.

What should I use for the correction on race #98 (Girls D1)? I read where the times are inaccurate.

Anonymous said...

Class will also be useful for rankings for next year XC season though it is still early. Nice to see this information after the state meet!

Marty said...

Mike, Yes, I saw that someone said the #98 times were inaccurate. I looked at them, and they do seem out of whack, so I plotted the first 30 finishers of each of the 4 D1 Girls varsity races. If you add about 100 seconds to the ones in race #98, the plot of that race looks more consistent with the others. But someone else will have to confirm if they actually didn't run that fast - maybe they did!

D3 girls - Isabelle DeMetz from Dougherty Valley NCS should be on your list 18:47 - won her race - the Dougherty Girls ran 1:41:22 to take 2nd in race 20.

We used to get all the class info from Mt Sac. from Dystat back when it was a real web site.

Anonymous said...

So should 75 seconds (give or take) be added on to ALL races?

Albert Caruana said...

No. Race #98 has been fixed.

My good buddy Hank Lawson is making some simulated races based on the results file we created in XCStats. He'll probably even post that file on his site for the enjoyment of all.
