And the 6th fastest girl in NorCal is? These comparisons don't add up.

The lists are not perfect as they are computer generated and based solely on times run at the section meets and probably course conversions.

Feel free to comment on the lists and list your own rankings.

Albert-Are you going to do any sort of writeup as to where we can expect NorCal runners to place at Woodward? There are a lot of runners we've never competed with in SoCal...

Hey Albert, By the time I got over to get a program at NCS they were gone. How did your write ups pan out in the program?

Albert Caruana said...

I got 31 out of the 34 state qualifying teams. Not bad. I was perfect with the boys qualifying teams and missed San Ramon Valley, McKinleyville and Branson on the girls side.

Have to say that the NCS conversions, when you look at place, don't seem to match up to other rankings based on performances throughout the season.

Albert Caruana said...

I agree. We'll just have to let the state meet decide who's best.

I'll give you the "not bad" pat on the back, but "perfect"? How correct were you on picking the order of those qualifiers?

Albert Caruana said...

By perfect, I was referring to the selections of all the state meet qualifying teams. I obviously did not get all correct finishes which is a bit more difficult.

Looks like D3 girls are one of the most competitive divisions in Nor Cal.

For Boys it is a solid mix but a slight advantage to D1 which you might expect with the bugger population draw.

Best small school (under 1250) for boys and girls looks like SLV.

Large school best boy / girl combo looks like Campolindo.
