When will it be announced who will be running in the SEEDED races? I know coaches can ask to be placed in the race when entering the meet, but when do they find out if they made the cut?

It looks like some races have way too many teams in them. Thirty teams should be the max. Most of the schools listed are using full teams.

I think Rich from Prepcaltrack was mistaken when he listed all the head to head team matchups by division. Many of the faster teams will all race head to head in the seeded race.

Albert Caruana said...

Correct in that some of the teams will be in seeded races. I will try to find out who is going to race in the seeded races and post them ASAP.

Why don't the coaches who put their teams in the seeded race post it here?

I wish Stanford had some sort of time qualifier to let people into the seeded races, instead of letting teams into the race with one fast guy and slow (relatively slow) #2, or 3-7. That way, there would be more room to let people in that would be realistically in the top 10 or actually really race, but can't get in because the race is full. :(

Albert Caruana said...

A very valid point. Perhaps more detailed instructions on how you qualify to run in the seeded races are in order?

I believe any team can enter the Seeded race, if the coach enters them in that race when they originally sign them up. Bellarmine will be in the Seeded race because we entered it on EZMEETS. We'll also have a team in the DI race. I know there are other teams that have entered two races, like Arcadia. Hopefully, it won't be too hot!

If I'm reading this correctly, I'm surprised to see neither Bellermine or San Ramon in the seeded race.

correction: Looks like Bellermine is in both seeded and d1

huh? Vista Del Lago girls choose to run in D3 race and not seeded? Nice rematch between Bella Vista and Davis. (O'Keefe vs Derry) BV beat Davis by 1 point in early season matchup. Davis made some adjustments since. BV seems to be running faster now as well. St. Francis, Rancho Bernardo, Foothill, Branson, Mira Costa.

I predict St. Francis and Rancho Bernardo go neck and neck the entire race. What a race this will be. St. Francis will win by 5 or less..

Davis hung with st Francis pretty well last week so they might be in the mix as well.

The other coach Chan (MHSB) said...

Does anyone know why Scotts Valley ran in the DIII race instead of DIV?

Albert Caruana said...

I am not sure. Some teams ran in other divisions because their own divisions were full already so they had to option up.

Being from San Diego I was hoping La Costa Canyon would also be there. Rancho Bernardo performed well. However, coach Dockery chose not to take one of his solid top 5 girls and that bit him in the backside. With a couple of the other girls not running their best, this would have improved their numbers by as much as 40 seconds and possibly 20 or 30 pts or so. Instead he took a senior who finished way back. Bummer for the girls.
