FACA Pollster's Official XC Post-Flrunners 11 Rankings! *Update #2*

As we move into week 4 of the season with the largest meet of the year behind us, the Flrunners 11 Invitational, we should now have a pretty solid breakdown for all of our FACA Rankings. There were many fast races, many great head-to-head performances and the excitement for how this season will all turn out keeps building each week. So without further delay (already being a little bit behind due to erroneous results), here is the 3rd set [of 7] rankings as put together by our volunteer pollsters!

3A Girls Rankings:
By: Andy Holmes, Seffner Christian Academy- aholmes@scacrusaders.com
 
Commentary: This past weekend saw great competition, with many of the top schools competing at flrunners.com, and others competing at Bale 'n Trail, and LOL Invite. With the head-to-head competition at these meets, the front--runners in 3A have made themselves know. This week I am going top 25 in the team rankings, so we can get a better picture of what teams will be qualifying for state. I want to emphasize that there is quite a bit of parity in the teams I have ranked 10-25. I also took a good look at the 1-5 split of each of the teams that were ranked, to see where they fall.

4A Girls Rankings:
By: Ryan Raposo, Ferguson HS - rraposo@dadeschools.net
 
Commentary: Looking at the current team breakdown, Lourdes is still holding off a strong charge by a bunch of Region 1 & 2 teams and some of our preseason favorites bounced back in the past couple of weeks of competition. You can't count out Dr. Phillips or Melbourne folks. These are two squads that are very well coached and will be able to put it all together when it matters! And like always, just a handful or points and seconds will determine that giant big 6-14 group. A good day could put you right up on top and a bad day could drop you a good five places.
 
Team Rankings:
  Team Name, Region -  (Prev.)  Comments:
1. Lourdes Academy, 4 - (1) 19:15 Team Avg, 3rd @ Flrunners ROC - Another strong performance and strong 1-7 pack, plus one of the best JV squads in the state. Two of their freshmen stepped up big time to help the Bobcats solidly beat Plant for the 2nd time this season.
2. Plant, 2 - (2) 19:40 Team Avg, 4th @ Flrunners ROC - Running strong even without their #1, Plant is still holding strong to that #2 position; but Lourdes will run away and our 3-4-5 teams will catch up if these girls don't continue progressing in the weeks to come.
3. Dr. Phillips, 2 - (10) 19:47 Team Avg, 8th @ Flrunners ROC - Back into a prime position after a strong showing at Flrunners. Don't think they're not ready to keep on jumping up! Blake is back and healthy and the rest of the squad will continue to improve with her leading the way.
4. Vero Beach, 1 - (T-4) 20:03 Team Avg, 11th @ Flrunners ROC - Holding strong to that top 5 spot, but I don't see the strong ability to jump a couple of these other tradiationally strong teams. They need to work on consistency in the weeks to come.
5. Melbourne, 1 - (9) 20:11 Team Avg, 1st @ DeLand - They've been in a few different meets over the last couple of weeks, but the only real concern is can they get a strong enough 5th girl to push their team back onto the podium once again?!
6. Spruce Creek, 1 - (7) 20:18 Team Avg, 13th @ Flrunners ROC; 20:44 @ DeLand (2nd) - Looking stronger each week and no problems taking on top 5 teams in the state. Keep working hard.
7. Boone, 2 - (T-4) 20:23 Team Avg, 15th @ Flrunners ROC
8. Hagerty, 1 - (8) 20:25 Team Avg, 16th @ Flrunners ROC

18. Sunset, 4 - (16) 22:16 Team Avg, 25th @ Flrunners Invite - Without their #1
19. Cypress Bay, 3 - (20) 21:37 Team Avg, 1st @ Flrunners Open
20. Coral Reef, 4 - (21) 21:53 Team Avg, 22nd @ Flrunners Invite; 22:38 @ Spanish River (5th)

Each week there are huge shakeups in the rankings, so be weary girls. Also, this ranking has a pretty even grade distribution in the top 30 athletes. That's pretty cool to see.

1A Boys Rankings:
By: Carl Egbert : cegbert@communityschoolnaples.org
 
Commentary: Lots of fast stuff this past weekend at FL Runners and at Great American. Two highlights that I saw was David Kilgore emerging as the front runner in 1A after going 15:20 and  Trinity Prep as a possible NXN team. They avg 15:43/man which is just nasty. After a little research I found only 2 teams have avg sub 16/runner at the State Meet at the ranch. In 2008 Leon and Belen Jesuit both went 15:58/runner in separate races. Trinity Prep is beginning to make some noise on a National level and I really don’t see them slowing down. I think this is another great argument for keeping the State Meet in the same location. This way we can compare teams from year to year and begin to establish all time team averages and all time lists. Lots of exciting stuff coming up with Pre State just around the corner on the 16th!

4A Boys Rankings:
By: Jorge Fleitas, Columbus HS - jfleitas@columbushs.com
 
Team Rankings:
  Team Name, Region -  (Prev.)  Comments:
1. Columbus (1) They are in great shape. 
2. Colonial (2) Colonial has become the team everyone was talking about before the season even started.  
3. Dr. Phillips (3) It was clear in the preseason that the Panthers had experience and the explosive runners would lead them back on the podium in Dade City. But some early sesason injuries have held them back.  It seems the healthier they get the better they may be.
4. John I Leonard (5) It seems J.I.L. senior Ryan Pickering is rewriting his school's record book, go under the 15:00 mark seemingly each week. A nice 3-4 pack put them in the hunt for a top 3 finish
5. HB Plant (4) A strong, dynamic showing by Bo Nalsen at flrunners keeps this team in a top 5 spot. 
6. Winter Park (6) The Park is one of those teams that can compete and stay in for chase for a top 4 spot. Look for them to have a big push come November.
7. Chamberlain (NR) Chamberlain is right where they were this time last year; moving up into the rankings and feeling pretty good about themselves with a strong 1-2 punch
8. Vero Beach (15) A nice race for the Beach at flrunners with a “W” over Chamberlain last week leads this team to its highest ranking this season. 
9. Boone (9) Boone's hopeful season is turning sour after a disapointing 13th place finish at flrunners. Look for Boone to boune back at Prestate.
10. Sarasota (NR) This was a team overlooked last week but I ranked them #6 in Preseason. Look for Sarasota to be strong come State time.
11. Hagerty (10)  
12. Seminole (11)  
13. St. Thomas (NR)

    AWWWWWWWW 2a guys not there once again :(
  • NHS80 / 4 Years Ago
    Just a Poll, I get it.. but Creekside over N'ville?...19:54 vs 20:05...? I don't get it, but I've never been a pollster..so just my "biased" post/opinion.
  • NHS80 / 4 Years Ago
    Wiregrass Ranch Boys #5 over N'ville..why?...17:04 vs 16:50, 59 sec spread vs 29 sec spread...is someone injured or missing from Ranch? There was no reasoning...
  • Coach_Keppel / 4 Years Ago
    @NHS80
    WR ran 16:46 at the Gator INvite, they had 5 under 17 min. Computerized Rankings were not updated until 3am this morning.

    @NHS80

    As Coach Keppel said, our last race is still not showing up in the database. You're seeing it as updated Kris? I'm not?

    It's all conjecture at this point so I would just take it as a fun way to look at things.

    Thanks to Coach Gardner who's not even a 3A coach to step up to take the time to do such a thorough job on the rankings!

    PS - Our spread at our last race was 29 sec. too :)
  • twangster / 4 Years Ago
    Not that I don't like being an underdog or flying under the radar but if a team beats another team in 2 big meets shouldn't they be ranked higher? Case in point boys 3A teams:

    UF Mtn Dew
    11th Fort Myers 376 pts. 17:49.6 avg.
    17th St. Cloud 501 pts. 18:15.5 avg.

    FL Runners - Boys Invite
    1st Ft. Myers 103 pts. 16:49.6 avg.
    4th St. Cloud 271 pts. 17:29.2 avg.

    Not sure of the methodology used but seems a bit off.
  • sobchak / 4 Years Ago
    Only one bad joke from the 3A Boys pollster this week.

    I found it pretty damn funny. In fact, he's had some of the most insightful commentary I've read since I've started following them.

  • Skip717 / 4 Years Ago
    Agreed with Twangster
  • CoachJanson / 4 Years Ago
    I am not one that really puts to much into rankings done by anything other than a computer and now I know why. How can we have dropped 5 spots, and have teams that we've beaten every time we have raced be ranked higher? Makes no sense, and I have nothing but respect for all the programs in the rankings. I like Jason's computerized rankings better, no emotion just pure stats!
  • papaolivia / 4 Years Ago
    AWWWWWWWWWWWWW- 2a guys get NO RESPECT
  • LFCSumner3 / 4 Years Ago
    It's ok. We don't need them to make us feel better.
  • gard2900 / 4 Years Ago
    twangster and NHS80,

    Very busy last 2 weeks, I wasn't able to do as much research for the rankings, but after Pre State rest assured the rankings will be spot on. As for The Ranch, their spot is supported by results, the St. Cloud vs. Ft Myers ranking was a little skewed since I was unable to look at head to head results (like I normally do).

    I'm doing my best...and I really love this job!
  • gard2900 / 4 Years Ago
    sobchak,

    Do you know how hard it is to write bad jokes?
  • pbryan / 4 Years Ago
    Darroneshia Lott in 3a has gone 18:25 2 weeks ago at the Gulf Coast Stampede. Would not be suprised if she went under 18:00 this week. The time you have posted for her was her first race of the year.
  • aholmes80 / 4 Years Ago
    @pbryan

    Thanks for the update on Darroneshia Lott; somehow that got overlooked
  • joliver1 / 4 Years Ago
    Two years ago the West Florida girls in 2a had a 24, 25 and two 27 minute runners at districts and now look at them! They have survived some extreme coaching changes and tough workouts and now are getting to see all that hard work pay off. The same can be said about our guys, I am very proud of this team! Also I agree with pbryan that Lott is someone to watch out for, this girl has not been able to get in many races against quality competition and has not been training very long compared to most at her level, I don't think she is running anywhere near her full potential and is definitely one to watch out for as an upset at State.
  • twangster / 4 Years Ago
    @gard2900

    Understood. Thanks for taking on this extra job, it certainly not for the faint hearted (especially with this bunch of rowdies, myself included).
  • FormerFLR / 4 Years Ago
    @CoachJanson

    I think the pollsters are going by the most recent meet results. While your team may have beaten some of these teams at the beginning of the year when they weren't in great shape yet, every team (with the exception of St. Thomas and a couple teams who ran Great American) ahead of you beat Spruce Creek at FLRunners. While I applaud what you have done with the program, you can't put too much stock into September meet results.
  • Realmenrun / 4 Years Ago
    Jason, there looks to be a problem with your computerized rankings. Some of the Flrunners 11 times are reflected in regional and district rankings but not in classification rankings. Once that is fixed there will be some shakeups in the computerized rankings.
  • Realmenrun / 4 Years Ago
    @FormerFLR Well said!
  • CoachJanson / 4 Years Ago
    While beating teams in the early season is being seen as a non event, it does mean something to the kids. I grant your that it's all about the "Big Picture", but the only reason rankings seem to matter is because the kids like seeing it. The only ranking I really care about is the one that will be done during the state meet in November, and "Realmenrun"....you have an opinion on everything, but still can't come up with that $35 subscription price. I don't know how you can even view the rankings without paying, but maybe Jason should look into this further. This site should only allow those of "US" who actually "PAY" to post anything here!

    @CoachJanson

    You don't have to be a subscriber to read the FACA rankings, coach.
  • Realmenrun / 4 Years Ago
    @CoachJanson Man what's in the water up there in Port Orange?? You guys really need to relax. Your a sensitive bunch. Remember this, peaking happens at the end of the season. Many teams do not even run their best runners at small, early meets. Flrunners 11 and Great American was a good indicator of where things will fall in November. Best of luck to everyone and may the best runner(s) win.
  • CoachWolfe / 4 Years Ago
    Having crossed paths with them a few times over the past couple of years, the Spruce Creek coaches are outstanding individuals who are simply passionate about doing all that they can for their athletes. There is nothing wrong with coming onto the forum and supporting their athletes any way they can.

    Coach Janson acknowledged that the rankings that truly matter will be the ones that come from the State meet, but he just wants to see his kids get some recognition. Nothing wrong with a little passion. The Creek program is consistently good for a reason.

    And Coach Oliver, nice job! It hasn't gone unnoticed. We're looking forward to seeing and competing against your squads at the Regional meet.
  • kieck55 / 4 Years Ago
    Lemon Bay High School has not run at many big meets but they should definitely be on the 3A top 20.
  • FormerFLR / 4 Years Ago
    @CoachJanson

    I agree, calm down! These ratings are the ones at the beginning of October, your kids shouldn't be anywhere near the best they'll run all season yet. There's still alot of meets to drop your times from now till November 20th. Look at Flagler Palm Coast, their guys usually drop about a minute from beginning-end of the season. They aren't on here now but I can almost guarantee they'll be Top 10 by the end of the season when it counts.
  • gshscrosscountry / 4 Years Ago
    looks like 2a boys region 3 is going to be a little close this year with top 6 teams rounding of at 12th
  • Nease1600miler / 4 Years Ago
    Why do the 2A boys get no respect? It takes Mr. Scott a long enough time to submit rankings, and when he does he just copies the virtual rankings! Come on, put a little bit of effort in compiling these rankings instead of just copying and pasting them!
