The top 4A boys teams show well in a power merge, right behind the top three 5A boys teams.

NOTE: The original version of this article mistakenly omitted Legend from the power merge. That has now been corrected.

The idea of a power merge is to reduce to field of a meet merge to a plausible size. In doing this, the scoring penalty on a comparatively slow 5th runner (or 4th runner, etc.) is more in line with what it would be in a typical meet. 

To create a power merge, you look for a natural break in the scoring at somewhere around 20 teams, eliminate the rest of the teams, and rescore the meet. Typically, this results in a fair bit of shifting from the full meet merge.

Here's what we get when we do that with the results from today's state meet with the boys results. This page will show the individual results and the next page the team scoring for the top 21 teams.
