Feel free to comment below. I tried my best to rank teams that haven't raced each other this season. If you feel like I left a team from the above list that belongs, go ahead and comment on their season below.

Scotts Valley has been very dominant this season and have a close 1-5 split. I would almost replace them with Placer based on how they raced at Clovis. Tough call.

I'm surprised that Campo is listed above Placer when Placer beat them head to head at Capital Cross. Placer held out a scorer at Clovis as well

I believe St Francis Sac is D2.

Campolindo has been missing one of their top runners as well. They are both at 10 so no preference at this point.

St Francis is in Division 2 and that has been corrected.

Campo is actually missing 2 of its top 3. I do not think they are going to get both back this season. However, even if they get one back, they have a chance of getting 5 guys under 16 at NCS.

Been really impressed by the St. Francis girls. They have been really focused on keeping a tight scoring unit and building up the confidence of the 4,5,6 runners to know that they can run with the top girls. Realistically they are a year off from really making some noise as they have an incoming freshman who is going to be a force to be reckoned with from the get go. Obviously not in Great Oak's class, but who is? I could see them really surprising some people come state and being one of the top teams there. I think they are still a long shot for a NXN invite this year, but won't be surprised if they make it close.
