Florida XC 2013 Boys Preseason All-Classification Computer Rankings

Belen Jesuit is a mile ahead of the field, according to our computer algorithm. Can anyone else surprise?

We just developed a brand new number-cruncher, allowing us to do these rankings. The rather complicated algorithm takes into account both cross country and track seasons, based on various categories and weights. I developed this on about 12 hours of coding on Friday, forgetting all about lunch that day! But very pleased with the result here. It even indicates what the computer believes the biggest weakness is at this point.

Teams that did not have much of a track season or did not have at least four of their top distance runners out for track may see their scores drop. However, teams that busted it and looked great this spring will show higher. Hopefully it is a good balance to predict who is strong coming in! It does not necessarily take into account any new freshman or transfers.

The score represents the team's weighted composite average rank across all categories. The "highest" column represents the highest ranking they received in a category, and conversely the lowest is the worst ranking they received in a category.

Subscribers can see stuff like this all the time. We'll be locking this new feature--called composite team rankings--down very soon. You can use this tool, like all of our others, to crunch it by other parameters or by district/region/class/conference, etc. So many reasons to subscribe! And we'll keep developing more! So go ahead and subscribe now!
