Colin Burke of BOD was the most impressive performance in my mind.

You mean more impressive than O'Keeffe, who would have been BOD's 4th man?

Anonymous said...

actually O'Keeffe is a girl. she ran in the Girls race after the boys.

Stanford course was short today. HS course was faster than past years, college was over 1 min fast.

Also, Aragon girls know they are D2 right? They put D3 in mercury news rankings and ran in the D3 race. Isn't running in a lower division a DQ?

Bellarmine beat by Los Gatos!

Fiona O'Keefe 16:40, great time Fastest in years?

hank said...

Mercury just prints what I give them and I don't check to see from year to year what schools move up or down in their division, I let the folks that care about divisions tell me if I have it wrong (then I correct it). Each race has a different break down on what their divisions are, they don't go by Section numbers for which Section numbers should/would Stanford use since teams come from all over the State? They set up their own numbers so I would bet that Aragon was in the correct division for Stanford. Just as I'm sure they know what division they are in. And no, it's not an auto-DQ if you run in the wrong division at Stanford (if a team even did run in a wrong division), at least it's not specified as a DQ in the Stanford rules (in fact are there any Stanford rules...?). At the State level it wouldn't be a DQ for let's face it, there is no way a team could even RUN in the wrong division while trying to qualify for State (each Section would prevent it).

Page 3, team divisions.

CA teams are to run in assigned division by their section. This CAN lead to DQ. I think this came up a few years ago.

No biggie though. Probably wanted boys and girls in the same division or an honest mistake. Not like there's any cherry picking.

hank said...

Yup, per Stanford #'s, Aragon was in the correct division for both the boys and girls (for the Stanford meet).

Yeah, the stanford rules are surprisingly lax about who races where. It seems like any team that wants to go down in division (ex. D4 race in d1) is completely allowed to. It's not too uncommon either, if the coaches want certain teams to race each other or to race against a harder field. It seems increasingly common in smaller schools that want to race head to head with in-league rivals.

It's nice to see an athlete move up from mid pack varsity to contender. Meredith Corda (Monte Vista - Danville) ran 18:06 yesterday. She gets my vote for biggest surprise.

How was the course faster this year? I can imagine the ground/grass course harder because of drought conditions versus the "springy softer" course from last year's. Did they have the same distance from last year?

Anonymous said...

Stanford Inv course is a joke - flat as can be. Presumably Stanford nixed using the hilly part used in past events.

Anonymous said...

How is the Course shorter? It looks exactly the same as last year. Looking at 2013 map and 2014 map. Identical! Course might be slower at first because of moisture and dew on the Course, with kids slipping around corners in the Div4 races and college races. Drying up as the day goes by then faster times. Weather was Great.

Teams are welcome to move up in divisions at Stanford. I don't see a problem with it considering the competition gets steeper as you move up. Moving down however is not allowed.

I think the course varies year by year. The flags and general course are the same but the tangents to them may be different. Another factor may be that last year was much hotter than this year.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous @ 6:34 PM is correct. Course was firm and weather was cooler than previous years. And course changes slightly every year.

Nils said...

Last year one runner told me "it was like running through soup" and he was talking about the humid air, not the course! So I think the much dryer grass and cooler, less humid air actually caused a speedup.

Anonymous said...

Colin Burke is pretty hot too

XC courses are not certified, per se, so variations exist from year to year. However, a nice 5k PB for many, many racers

GHPADD said...

Hmmmmm, looks like the top 10 Leader board for the young ladies and young men will need some slight adjustments. Possibly the team rankings too?

pmccrystle said...

in terms of course length, if anything the course was slightly longer this year, according to current members of the Stanford men's XC team, who often times train on the course (Jack Bordoni is a former BCP runner who runs now for Stanford, with whom I spoke at the meet)...so the faster times this year are in my opinion due 100% to the weather. I cannot remember the last time the Stanford Invite had such perfect racing conditions: dry, relative low humidity, and relatively cool temps. The weather this weekend is what the Stanford Invite usually experiences!
