Live Results:
Boys Varsity Small School: This should be a showdown between the top two DIII teams in Northern California as Maria Carrillo and host Campolindo square off. Maria Carrillo looks primed for another incredible performance as Pierce Kapustka, Colton Swinth, Rory Smail, and Harrison Frankl key a potent front end attack. Teddy Buckley from Campolindo seeks to improve upon his 2nd place finish from a year ago but he will be tested by Maria Carrillo's frontrunners.

Girls Varsity Small School: One of the deepest girl's fields in recent memory should provide plenty of excitement as state-ranked Miramonte, Maria Carrillo, Vista del Lago, and Campolindo face off. Miramonte has one of the best freshman classes in the state, with Jaime Say, Claire Nolet, and Kate Riley looking to key a strong performance. Vista del Lago returns the bulk of their state runner-up team from a year ago, with Anna Vogtmann looking to lead her team to victory. Maria Carrillo also looks to take home the top prize as the pumas bring a deep team headed by Aimee Armstrong. Individually, Rayna Stanziano from Concord looks to be one of the favorites here. Emily Perez from St. Joseph Notre Dame will also be in the mix up front.

Boys Varsity Large School: Two EBAL schools in Dublin and Amador Valley appear to be the top teams vying for the team title. Dublin has one of the best frontrunning duos in the state in Loic Scomparin and Chris Middleton-Pearson but Amador has a much-improved squad with the likes of Jack Grey and Aidan McCarthy.

Girls Varsity Large School: Oakland Tech looks to be the favorites here as they return their entire team from last season, with Caroline Garrett looking to take home the individual title as well. Strong squads from Amador Valley and Homestead will also be in the mix. Gabriela Hernandez from Vacaville and Kelli Wilson Monte Vista will also be in the mix to win top individual honors.

Amador Valley's top 5 boys and girls will not be racing this weekend. It will be "B" squads in the varsity for us. Looking forward to the meet though.

How are the St Francis(SJS) girls not even mentioned? They probably have the strongest team in the SJS, in any division this year, with at least 6 girls capable of running sub 19 for 5K. If you don't think they are contenders, you are missing the boat.

Thank you for bringing up the St. Francis, Sacramento girls. I am sure they will be quite formidable as usual. Andy and I did a couple of quick previews of the meets and if we missed a couple of teams or individuals, please feel free to bring them in the comment section.
