Fort Collins owns the fastest team average at 15:38.
The 5A team races will likely be hotly contested in two weeks... And even this week...
So, on paper - in terms of speed - who tops the list as fastest squad, so far?
The Fort Collins boys can lay claim to the title of Fastest Squad so far. Their 15:38 team average through five runners tops the list by 17 seconds.
Dakota Ridge, Mountain Vista, and Valor Christian all own team averages under 16 minutes as well, with Dakota Ridge owning a 15:55 team average, Mountain Vista at 15:56, and Valor at 15:58.
The girl's side of the list has four nationally ranked squads...
Cherokee Trail tops them all in terms of speed. Their 18:03 team average is seven seconds ahead of Valor Christian, who owns a 18:10 average, and Cherry Creek, who come in No. 3 with a 18:14 average. Arapahoe comes in No. 4 with an 18:39, which is ahead of the defending state champs - Mountain Vista, who have yet to truly run on a fast course at full strength...
