I'm sorry if this seems off topic (I'm actually trying to interpret that rankings) - is there a link that some could point me to that lists the number of teams to qualify for the state meet from each section in California?

Albert Caruana said...

Check state meet website under xc for last years numbers and then check out this link http://www.runnerspace.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=758816&pid=803253&st=0&#entry803253

I'm curious as to how Arroyo Grande girls end up 17th overall and 7th for D2. Dyestat doesn't reflect a number 5 runner and as far as I can tell this is the only team that includes a freshman in their "returning" runners. Doesn't seem like enough info to rank them that high.

Rumor has it La Reina from D4 will not have their number one runner Ariana Brojkavich returning this season. That affects them greatly!

soooo Kaila gibson from soquel transferred to SLV... and its relevant right here.

Albert Caruana said...

Thank you for the update on the La Reina runner.

That is correct. Former Soquel HS runner Kaila Gibson is now attending SLV. She will be eligible to race again in early October.

Man Rob is a good recruiter. He got Jessica Germany from Scotts valley two years ago and now Kaila. He would be a great college coach.

JGilkey said...

You can transfer to any school you want now - don't you remember the Aidan Golata situation, he moved legally to what he thought was a better running situation for him? Maybe these girls just chose to move to a place they felt they could get better training environment from a proven winning coach. It is perfectly in their right and legal. You are the same Anonymous whiner that complains about Rob all the time? Sorry you can't handle his success. If you stop worrying so much about Rob and focus on whatever it is you do in running maybe you'll get rid of some of your anger toward SLV.

To the anonymous 10:06 it's against CIF rules to recruit.

Anonymous said...

Uh, yeah...Anon 10:06pm may want to go easy with making comments about a coach's "recruiting". Definitely a CIF rule infraction

Albert Caruana said...

I would be careful about making allegations against people with no proof of any wrong doing.

As stated above, a student is able to transfer from school to school and becomes eligible after sitting out the required 30 days for each individual sports season.

Former SV Parent. Jessica Germany Never Planned on Attending SV, She Shadowed SLV SC and Harbor and Chose SLV since it was a 5 Minute Drive, Good Academic Scores, No Budget Problems, No Pay for Play and Was a Better fit than the other schools and Her Younger Brother Who Is Not a Runner Is Attending SLV Middle School because of the same Reasons.

So, if the Santa Cruz county girls of 2012:
Anna Maxwell, SLV
Nikki Hiltz, Aptos
Clare Peabody, Aptos
Vanessa Fraser, Scotts Valley
Clair McMillan, SLV
Kaila Gibson, Soquel
Yulisa Abundis, Aptos
all transferred to the same school would they have been the most powerful High School girls team..ever?
Far-fetched, but intriguing.

Albert Caruana said...

You can say that about other areas in California (especially the southern end) but there is no denying the talent level in the Santa Cruz area.

I hate the transfer rule, just going to create all-star teams at privileged schools. Look at the backlash on private schools for football and basketball. This will come to xc now too. Get ready for an open division boys and girls.

Albert,
I was talking about the Santa Cruz girls as a league (SCCAL) All the girls live within 10-12 miles of each other. I'm not sure how many leagues there are in California, but I don't think that there's any other league in the state, including the Southern section, that could put together a team with four sub 5 min 1600m runners and a fifth runner with a 5:02. I don't think you could "say that about other areas in California." Don't mean to be argumentative. I just don't think we'll ever see that type of talent gathered together in one year again.

Albert Caruana said...

Not arguing with you at all. The talent level of the SCCAL girls was off the charts last year.

Anonymous said...

Similar to the SCVAL boys in 2009: Garrett Rowe, Ian Myjer, Philipp MacQuitty, Paul Summers, and Parker Schuh. Crystal Springs times at CCS that year: 14:41 (Summers), 14:52 (Rowe), 15:03 (Myjer), 15:03 (MacQuitty), and 15:16 (Schuh).

Actually, those five came from just 3 adjacent schools.

yeah yeah girls are incredible. I wouldn't put it past the aptos boys for a top 10 finish at state though, they compare pretty well to bonita.
4 under 4:40 in 1600, 5th 10:20 midway through the season. led by the sophomore thats looking at a top 3 CCS finish and other young talent

uhh oops, sorry, I didn't realize that the boys and girls were different articles... sorry to sound stupid
