I predict Sarah Robinson breaking Gunn's Crystal Springs course record and running the fastest time of the day. She has been steadily improving each race and is good at pushing herself with no competition.

My prediction:

Sarah Robinson 16:48
Anna Maxwell 16:43

Too bad Maxwell and Robinson are in different divisions. I think Robinson might have the advantage at CCS just because she has run on the course multiple times this season.

" I think Robinson might have the advantage at CCS just because she has run on the course multiple times this season."

Then again, Maxwell will run earlier in the day when the temperatures are cooler. Either way, both should be running solo most of the way, so it may just end up being who is more "on" that day.

I don't think the temperature will be a factor. It's supposed to be high 50s and low 60s throughout the day.

Maxwell may have someone who may push her for a while in Niki Iyer but for the most part, both runners should be running solo.

We'll see. I don't know if we have ever had two girls break 17 on the same day before.

I agree that temperature is unlikely to be a factor, but wind might.

Heard that Maxwell is just Focusing On the Win and Aiming for State, Since that's the Big Picture. So what is Up with Robinson. Is she going to Play Soccer or run in College or both?

Awesome. Thanks for the find. So girls started running cross country in the late 70s and we have had 2 girls go sub 17 on the same day one time.

I am rooting for it to happen again tomorrow.

Here's a trivia question. How is the second girl under 17 on that day in 1979 connected to the current Stanford women's team?

Anonymous @1:21 -- she is the mother of one of the girls on the current Stanford cross country team!

OK, I give - give (that's a give-give) me names. Should they be on the CS 2nd Generation list?

Vickie Cook is the mother of Cami Chapus, who ran at Harvard-Westlake, and was 26th today at the NCAA West Regional

It's too bad that Anna Maxwell isn't going to go for it. (According to 8:31 AM- who I suspect really knows!)
I don't think she will really face a challenge at State...why not try to be one of a very select group to break 17:00? I think there may only be 4-5 other girls to have achieved that feat.

Well the results are in and two girls left their names on the all time list for sub 17 - congrat's to both!

Now the results are in and 2 sub 17's for the books. Congrat's to both girls!
