Some divisional errors here: Cosumnes Oaks and Woodcreek are D2, not D1; Yuba City and Atwater are D2, not D3; Lincoln(L) is D3, not D2; West Park is D4, not D3.

Well done on the SJS rankings!

I agree with it all other than putting Placer boys so high. Whitney split their squad between Varsity and F/S, and still beat Placer by 10 points in the Varsity race at Flat Sac. Whitney got beaten pretty bad by Folsom at their league champs at Jessup. When you merge Folsom, Davis and Jesuit scores together after all racing at Jessup last weekend, Jesuit had 36 pts, Folsom and Davis were tied at 46 pts, so that will be a great D1 boys final between those 3 teams. Vista Del Lago also peaks at the end of the season, and had 5 boys faster than 18 minutes at their league champs on a tough Willow Hills course.

So I would drop Placer down to 7th, b/c they have beaten Rocklin #8 a couple of times this year.

Vacaville are seriously strong this year, and will podium if they can pack up at state meet. Kellen Steplight will hopefully join them, but that team is so deep, it might be too early for him to move up to the #5 spot. Give him 5 months training and he will be at Arcadia.

It's going to be interesting to see how sections plays out. Jesuit had all of their top 5 (for the first time I believe) at the Delta League Championships and becomes the slight favorite in D1 Boys. Davis and Folsom ran almost identical team times (1-5) at their respective league championships, (both run on the Jessup course), 1 day apart. The fight for the 2nd D1 Boys state meet birth will be a dog fight. Vacaville is the clear favorite in D2 Boys, with the only question being, will Kellen Steplight find the form to grab a top 7 spot after recovering from a long term injury.

On the girls side, St. Francis was 8 seconds faster on average (1-5) than Granite Bay, so that will be another race that will likely come down to the wire. Oak Ridge has the fastest girl's team in the section and has a solid chance at a podium finish at state.

Thanks everyone for your comments, they’re great! I incorrectly used to determine divisions because I couldn’t find them on cifsjs(found them now-in past years they were so easy to find!). I’ll adjust the rankings before the section meet. See you at the meet, looking forward to all the great races, individual and team!
