PREDICTIONS (OK, I wimped out D2 third place, but here's what to expect.)

D1 GIRLS - 2 TEAMS MAKE STATE
SECTION CHAMPION: ST FRANCIS
QUALIFY FOR STATE: OAK RIDGE
SECTION CHAMPION: SOPHIE MEADSNEXT FIVE OVERALL: MACKENZIE MILLS, HALEY KROLL, LAUREN LAROCCO, CLAIRE MILLER, FAITH MAKAU
5 STATE INDIVIDUALS: This is going to be a bit insane... There may be no St Francis or Oak Ridge girls in the Top 5.
That means you could finish sixth in this race, under 19:45, and not go to state. It's happened before in this Division.
If the prediction holds true, SOPHIE, MACKENZIE, HALEY, CLAIRE, and FAITH go to state.
Very strong contenders include: Kristina Martinez of NU, Jerriann Wells of PG, and Jillian Brown of McClatchy

D2 GIRLS - 3 TEAMS MAKE STATE
SECTION CHAMPION: WOODCREEK
QUALIFY FOR STATE: VACAVILLE, then BELLA VISTA or GRANITE BAY ???
SECTION CHAMPION: KARINA NUNESNEXT FIVE OVERALL: SHAYNA POWLESS, LEANNE JARVIS, SARA LACK, KATIE MERSEREAU, LAUREN STANISLAW
5 STATE INDIVIDUALS: Once again, you might have to finish within the Top 10 to be a Top 5 individual.
If BV edges GB, the individuals could be SHAYNA, KATIE, LEANNE, LAUREN, and Cassidy Heckman of Atwater.
Other contenders are Francesca Loazoya of Kimball, Natalie Hassna of Granite Bay, and Cassidy and Sydney of Lodi.
Christine Redor of Ponderosa is another one to worry about.

D3 GIRLS - 3 TEAMS MAKE STATE
SECTION CHAMPION: VISTA DEL LAGO
QUALIFY FOR STATE: OAKMONT, DEL ORO
SECTION CHAMPION: KARLIE GARCIANEXT FIVE OVERALL: MADELEINE ANKHELYI, CLARE CARROLL, SIERRA JAEGER, NEYSA MAINS, MARISA CARINO
5 STATE INDIVIDUALS: NEYSA seems like a lock. Megan Hall and Jenica Dodge of Whitney, Andrea Haro of
Cosumnes Oaks, and Christina Winters of Placer are our choices to make state individually, Gotta finish in the Top 14.

D4 GIRLS - 2 TEAMS MAKE STATE
SECTION CHAMPION: BRET HARTEQUALIFY FOR STATE: RIVERBANK
SECTION CHAMPION: BECKY HOBBYNEXT FIVE OVERALL: KRISTEN TURNER, KAYLEE SEDLER, SAMANTHA SMITH, KELSEY GALLEGOS, MIKAYLA FLOREZ
