As we transition into the 2014-15 school year and shift from track & field back to cross country, it's fun to utilize the flrunners database to see just what teams dominated distance races on the track and what happens if you scored those events as a cross country meet. This is by far one of my favorite features. Here's what the database tells us...
Coming off another stellar year, the newly crowned 2A Track & Field State Champion / back-to-back 2A Cross Country State Champion Girls from Bolles lead the way in the top returning squads based off of track team perfection in the 3200m and 1600m for all classifications. For this 2014 season they ranked 3rd in the 3200m, 2nd in the 1600m, and 1st in the 800m among all classes as well. Once again, the consistency and depth of Coach Tony Ryan's Bulldogs has set them up for another year of success leading the for Florida. However, the second ranked team for both events shown below are the ladies from Pine Crest, a rival for Bolles, so this looks to be another competitive season for that 2A state title!
