NCS Division I Rankings by Peter Brewer (Part 5)

North Coast Section
Division I Rankings

October 12, 2008


1. Granada The Matadors snuck in and took 2nd in the the large schools race at Clovis and Amador took 4th. Only a few points separated the two, so clearly the EBAL rivalry is just starting to heat up. Alex Summers led the way with a 15:48 on the State Meet course.

2. Amador Valley The Dons had some internal lineup shifts, so clearly not everyone was at their best at Clovis. Still they managed to finish well and there are still weeks left before the end.

3. Monte Vista The Mustangs were off this weekend, but ended the first EBAL Center meet losing only to Amador. Mike Roderick is still the pride of the EBAL this year.

4. Castro Valley The Trojans force their way into the rankings by virtue of three straight invitational wins -- Ram Invitational, Artichoke Invite (large schools) and now their own Castro Valley Invite.

5. College Park The Falcons also took the weekend off. They showed well at the Scott Bauhs Invite the previous week.

1. Castro Valley The Trojans are making it look easy as they took their 3rd Invitational win in a row: Stanford, Artichoke, and now the Castro Valley Invite over a hard-charging Casa Grande team.

2. Monte Vista The Mustangs were idle this weekend, but did very well in their EBAL enter meet, beating Granada on the head-to-head 26-33. Nicole Aha is their lead runner.

3. College Park Even with a bye weekend, the Falcons are very strong and command attention in big races. Alycia Cridenbring had a big win at the Scott Bauhs Invite last week.

4 Granada Hayley Swanson led the Matadors to 5th in the Large Schools race at Clovis. They may be ready to move up a notch. They also edged California in the EBAL center meet 26-30.

5. California Colleen Lillig ran very well and the team took 3rd at the Castro Valley Invitational.
