Only individuals so far which you can find here:

I will wait until the SJS posts the divisional breakdowns for the team rankings.

Possibly a little better analysis is looking at returning top performers from last year. For instance, in 5k distances it would be:

Jenna Storms (11)WV
Megan James (11) WV
Delaney Faggard (12) WV
Sydney Pruett (11) Enterprise
Anna Lewis (10) Central Valley

Clayton Bunn (12) Yreka
Landon Woollard (12) Shasta
David Neil (12) Yreka
Damon Young (12) Durham
Matt Yochim (11) Yreka

THREE MILE DISTANCE:
Landon Woollard (12) Shasta
Clayton Bunn (12) Yreka
Matt Yochim (11) Yreka
David Neil (12) Yreka
Andris Molina (12) Chico

Jenna Storms (11)WV
Megan James (11) WV
Delaney Faggard (12) WV
Belle Moran (10) Redding Christian
Sydney Pruett (11) Enterprise

Anon 1:19p - your rankings could be used, but in looking at meets where Woolard and Bunn raced against each other, Woolard won almost every time (major exception being at Woodward where Bunn - Div IV - ran a 16:04 and Woolard - Div III - ran a 16:45).

Worth noting that the Northern Section - close to 20% of the state geographically but only 71 member schools - is easier to list as a cohesive section. Public schools under 500 are the rule rather than the exception.

Their section final even runs almost like an "all comer" meet, with Div III, IV, and V running together (NS has no schools in Div I or II).

jered, thank you for the clarification.

One of the nice things about the NS is they use athletic.net which makes for easy scheduling, registration, and...none of these hiding the ball stuff that sometimes goes on in xc.

But I don't think I could go so far as to say Woolard won almost every time. He won one more than Bunn.

At Mt. Shasta 2.35...well, the two lads tied!

At Springhorn 3 mile...it goes to Woollard. He also gets NSCIF finals (3 miles) and Yreka 5k.

In Bunn's corner :)...he wins in the 5K Stanford and 5K State meet.

So... the W/L/T is....(drum roll please...)

Bunn: 2/3/1
Woollard: 3/2/1

Oh, and to be fair...in the Stanford and State meet the two did not meet but raced their respective division races.

Sounds like a little rivalry going on between the two. Should be an interesting season!
