This list looks pretty good. My two cents:

- Coonfield ran 10:20 last year and was faster than McCandless at NCS and State before losing head to head at NXN. She should be the 3200m favorite or at least co-favorite
- Hansel has always run the 1600 better than the 3200. Maybe a wild card at 1600 instead?
- Dougherty Valley's Guo is another wild card at 3200

Seriously, only one comment and it took days! You all love your lists, surprised there's not more debate. Or at least argument on the superior private schools.

In the girls 800, Avi lost to Heidi by .003 sec but at the State final Avi defeated Heidi by almost 4 seconds. Kind of think Avi should be the person to beat in the NCS.

Miles Duncan is a threat/wildcard in the boys 800. Goes out hard & runs until he drops. As he matures physically he will be tough to beat at this distance.
