    @Raycer131 Buddy and Herbert don't sound anything alike to me. I would like to see some verification of this "Buddy Herbert" person.

    Interesting, but....there are a lot of XC runners that don't even run the 3200-either they run 800/1600 or some don't run at all (something about sitting around for 10 hours at a track meet only to run 1 event, and it's the 2nd to last one of the meet).

    Interesting information:
    I took this (with some corrections) and cross referenced it to 2011 XC returners fl.milesplit.com/teamscores/2011/cc/hs/m/5000m?l=&.... (also with some corrections, most notably FWB moves from 1 to 3 in the rankings after disallowing Black Cat Invite results) and came up with a pretty good picture for overall state top ten rankings for boys XC 2012.

    #1 Belen Jesuit
    #2 Colonial
    #3 Holy Trinity
    #4 Geo. Steinbrenner
    #5 Fort Myers
    #6 Chiles
    #7 Fort Walton Bch.
    #8 Naples
    #9 Trinity Prep
    #10 Christopher Columbus

    To jdpsu's point though teams like Estero that have small distance teams that are more concentrated on 1600m / 800m are left out of this calculation. Maybe Jason will find the time to do a top 50 for those distances as well

    @twangster Last year Jason did articles with 1600m performances besides the 3200m performances. And looking at the upcoming articles, the girls rankings only have 3200m results as well. If you'd like to see the 1600m or the 800m rankings, let me know and I can show them to you.

  • jason / 3 Years Ago
    @CoachRaposo You have no patience and are extremely annoying. And I mean that in the most loving way possible.
