Well, the NS totally uses, so it’s pretty easy to get past performances on this.

For instance, in the Girls 800, one might differ in Alexa Flagg begin the favorite, since Hinkle ran a full 2.39 seconds faster. Boys 1600 Clayton Bunn? Maybe, but Woollard is 3 seconds faster, and Andrew Lopez, listed as a wildcard is 1.5 secs faster.

In the girls 3200, based on cross-country performances, I think the threat Natalie Ulloa may be the front runner there, and on the boys side, Andis Molina with the fastest time only a wildcard???

Well, be an interesting season to see how it all shakes out.
