2011 Cross Country,
Norcal Rankings '11
SRV might move up to top 10 on the team side given a good effort at both EBAL center meet and at Mt Sac.

Wouldn't it be more useful to rank the teams in separate divisions? A lot more work, of course. But they really don't compete directly with each other.
Richard Ho moves up based on his Mt Sac Performance.
The Alameda Girls may now deserve HM status. They moved up to 4th in the 10/5 NCS D2 rankings. And on 10/22 they bested the team times of Maria Carrillo, St. Francis (Sacramento) and SRV at Mt. SAC.
I only follow SJS, so here's what I have through Mt SAC. Boys1) Woodcreek2) Del Campo3) Bella Vista4) Davis5) Pleasant Grove6) Placer7) Oak Ridge8) El Dorado9) Lincoln (Stk)10) JesuitThe 1st 3 teams are pretty much interchangeable on any given day barring injuries, etc. Davis is in a little bit of a down year for them, though they always finish strong and I know they're going to be pretty strong again next year. At state D2, SJS will do really well with WC, DC and BV all probable top ten and maybe one or more cracking top 5. Jesuit, Vacaville, Lodi and Rocklin will battle for the last state spot. In D1, Davis and either Pleasant Grove, Oak Ridge or Lincoln of Stockton for the 2 spots, though neither D1 team will finish in top 10 at state. In D3, it's possible either Placer or El Dorado could break top 10 at state, though they would need to run way over their performances to this point, more likely will finish 12th to 14th.Girls, I don't do a top 10. Obviously St Francis and Vacaville need to move up above one or more of the SJS teams listed in the previous rankings (e.g. Oakmont, BV, etc.). I'm optimistic that many of the girls teams can do well at state, probably mostly St Francis and maybe Oak Ridge in D1. Even though Vacaville and Woodcreek are having excellent years, they probably won't crack top 8 at state b/c so many of the SS teams are potentially national caliber (according to Rich Gonzalez). I think Vista Del Lago is D3, so they should do well at state.
Top 25 Overall For Girls @ Mt.

Amador is NCS. So Jena Pianin is #2 NCS and Nicole Lane is #3.
From EBAL - both Trever Furhman and Matt DeVries ran well at Mt Sac as well as at the recent EBAL center meet.
At the minimum, Trevor Stephens of Del Oro should have an Honorable mention. 9th Nor-Cal runner at Mt. Sac in 15:44. 16:36 and 16:50 on the Willow Hills Course this season so far. # 2 finisher to a Reno Runner at the NU Invitational and winner of the DO Invite and DO 4000 (yea-yea, home course but, still awesome times). SFL League finals this Friday at William Jessup University (2:00) will further define Woodcreek, Granite Bay, Rocklin and Del Oro teams/runners that should be in the top Nor-Cal considerations.
Ho will probably stay right where he is. Top 4 from the previous Norcal Rankings didn't run Mt. Sac. Luna, Rushing, Bishop, Alex Conner. Ho was beat by Connor Clark who ran the same time as John Lawson. That would put him at 7.
Kevin Bishop ran 15:55 at Mt. SAC.
Ho put about 10 seconds on the kid from Northgate at Mt Sac.
but Ho was beat by 10 seconds by someone who was previously ranked lower than him. ergo, he stays in the 7 spot
...to above post. Well done! I stand corrected.
...so when will we see updated ranking?
I am planning on posting an update by mid week. Thanks for the interest.
