One has to question the methodology used to produce this list. How can Dodds and Van Scoter be 7 and 8 having placed 14th and 16th of the returning athletes from the 2014 state meet? If MS is trying to include 3200 meter performance then clearly Coppi should be up there as well as Ehrenberg and Villar. However, Coppi’s XC time doesn’t even have him in the top 10 , just like Dodds and Van Scoter. Furthermore, using 3200 data to predict these XC outcomes is problematic because running 2 miles on a track is different than running 3 on hills which is evidenced by the 3200m times of Ogden, Reynolds, Ehrenberg, Villar, and Garcia.

CIF 2014 place Time Name MS Rank 3200
1 14:58 Rocha,Phillip 1 8:59
2 15:09 Tamagno,Austin 3 8:54
3 15:11 Ogden,Jake 4 9:14
4 15:12 Herrerra,Ed 2 8:55
5 15:16 Reynold,Garrett 5 9:12
6 15:18 Kurdy Sean 6 9:08
7 15:25 Ehrenberg Andy 9:15
8 15:27 Villar Miguel 9:14
9 15:27 Garcia Hector 9:18
10 15:28 Baddour Yousef 9:54
11 15:29 Frisbie David 9:39
12 15:30 Lamberth Chance 9:28
13 15:32 Villela Adam 9:30
14 15:32 Van Scoter Jack 8 9:18
15 15:33 Coppi Mason 9:01
16 15:37 Dodds Spencer 7 9:09

Kurdy ran a 13:31 for 2.71 miles at Jesuit's annual intra-squad meet setting an all time record for the program. Additionally the top 7 ran the fastest time ever there, besting the record of a state champion team and national championship qualifier. Top 5 is loaded (:18 gap)

What is course like for Kurdy? Hilly flat? 13:31 (4:59/5:00 pace) equiv pace to about 15:40/45 5K so not too shabby for this early in season

CA Milesplit's results database seems to have plenty of gaps, which leads to some comical preseason predictions (see top 5 NCS teams for 3 miles). The bigger annoying issue is it's part of the Flotrack network and charging for content (like athlete results) which can easily be found for free on several other sites such as DyeStat, PrepCalTrack and athletic.net.

You guys and your rankings. All of this means absolutely nothing.

I love the chatter about the sport but there is very little profiling programs and individuals here and too many rankings.

How about some real coverage. I'm sick of lists that mean nothing.

There is more to Milesplit than just data. If there are gaps (as in missing results), those can be added very quickly if pointed out. During the season, CA Milesplit will cover many of the top meets with videos and photos. With the database, Milesplit can also post virtual meets before some of the bigger invitationals as well as compare some of the best athletes head to head. Features such workout wednesdays with teams like Great Oak are coming up. The cost is only $4 a month. You get way more than your money's worth.
