2A Girls XC By Rankings


Sydney Petersen is half of a powerful duo at Crested Butte. If the Titans find or develop a third, there could be trouble brewing within the 2A ranks.


You probably know last year's story here. Telluride overcame the loss of a couple of projected team members last fall and won another state title. Can they make it three in a row this fall?

Well, one way of getting at an answer to that question is to delve into the rankings of returning runners. We do that three different ways here. We look at last fall's rankings of returning runners, this spring's rankings of returning 1600 runners, and then this spring's rankings of 3200 runners. Each method has its associated benefits and problems, but, together, they give us a pretty decent look at what to expect for this fall, minus any glance at the impact of incoming freshmen. 

So, we begin with a glance at the team scoring of the rankings of returning runners from last fall, 15 teams deep:

The graduation of #3 Alyssa Pack for Telluride seems to tighten up the pack of teams behind Telluride. Most especially, Paonia and Heritage Christian Academy are breathing right down the backs of the Miners.
