Is this a private or public school. Those times are truly amazing!

Wow, that must be cool to watch those guys run. My guess is that they have a great team chemistry and encourage each other and compete against each other all the time. They also probably have a great program in terms of knowing how hard to train without getting hurt.

Here's the secret: lots of fast motivated boys who race the workouts. The elite are truly elite and go to the top with a few casualties on the way. It pays to have talent and numbers. It's the old college way. We are innately competitive, can't help it.

Plus God loves Catholics more I think.

I liked the division rankings last year, it gave me something to look forward to every week! When are these coming out???????

Coach Tim said...

How big is the team, and how fast are the bottom 20?

What is the Jr High/Youth feeder program like?

Impressive team. Best of luck to them this season and beyond.

This avg of 9:13 is also without the two senior who ran 4:09 and 4:12..They would have had a 5 man avg under 9:10--the 9:13 avg is ALL underclassman
