Colorado Track XC 2A Boys All-State Team

Ben Kelley made a clean sweep of the 800, 1600, and 3200 at last weekend's state meet. Even when his Breathe-Rite strip started to lose its grip, he only tightened his own grip on his lead.

I hope to forestall a lot of questions here by letting you folks know a few things about the formula I'm using here to determine the all-state team. State places in individual events up to place 5 count for consideration, first or second-place relays count for consideration, and a season-best mark for the classification without a state championship counts for consideration. All these contribute to a point total, and the top 20 point totals become the all-state team.
