I accidentally deleted this post so here you go.

This is a bit late since you posted your preview (sorry), but the Bella Vista girls won't be at Lagoon Valley--just the boys. The BV boys team has a lot of depth. The girls are rebuilding their team after losing all but one to graduation from their powerhouse team. The BV girls will be at Lowell.

Additionally, Vacaville has a strong, young girls team which deserves a mention. Sophomores Gabriela Hernandez and Jaxin Woodward had strong track seasons as freshmen.

I'm excited to watch XC get underway. Great sport!

I actually didn't post that under this feed. :)

Did you ever find meet records? Sofia Castiglioni's 18:17.1 today has got to be near the top. Wow!

Is this sportsmanship, helping a ailing runner or cheating? The girl is literally pulling her teammate accross the finish line?

I am sorry. I can't view Rich Gonzalez's Instagram and Twitter accounts. Apparently I am a huge competitor.

It's a picture of a girl pulling her teammate accross the finish. Dangerous and one might argue the opposite of sportsmanship as there is no concern for the athlete but rather the team score.

I think this is a new rule that we will just have to see if it needs to be tweaked in the future. I understand not DQ'ing someone for helping a teammate or opponent but maybe the best course of action in some of these situations is to allow the medical people to deal with the situation right away.
