Perhaps Anna Flynn should be higher than 98. FL NE team won in San Diego last year with 26 points. West was 2nd with 49. Bottom line is that FL NE was the most talented and difficult to make the top 10. Perhaps the northeast is generally underrepresented on your list.

On Ortega vs Williams ...

My end-of-season rankings last December had Marissa Williams 25th, Ortega 27th.

Both of them theoretically could have moved up some from that. What bothered me slightly about Ortega is that she didn't race after May 8. I presume there was an injury there, so that made me a little cautious with her. But she is also the presumed No. 1 for Saugus, which is a great program, so I give her the benefit of the doubt for getting ready for the upcoming season.

Williams slipped a few spots -- but again, these things are so close that a difference of 5 spots is pretty miniscule from 27 to 32. However, the reason why she slipped a bit was her California state meet and 14th in the 3200 finals. Collins, Beneduce, Pietrzyk and McCandless all beat her there pretty handily. Williams was 8th in this race in 2013 and 10 seconds faster. She could have an awesome fall, and I hope she does, but her most recent "big" race left something to be desired.
DougB
Right, Foot Locker Northeast is definitely a meet that mattered in these rankings.

Anna Flynn was 26 seconds up on Warner at the finish --- and she's 98th!

Is Warner deserving? Maybe ... and we'll surely find out. But it takes some seriously good credentials to make this top 100 list. The overall quality of girls distance running in the US has sky-rocketed in the last 10 years.

The girl who comes in at 100th ... ran 10:49 for 3200 at altitude and was 13th in the NXN Southwest meet. Lots of quality in that race, too.
Scott Joerger
Matthew,

I believe the difference that separates Marissa and Samantha is their performances at the national meets - NXN and and FLN. Since these are national rankings, Doug has to be looking at these two national meets as his first comparison. Samantha Ortega ran 17:53 at FLN for 15th place, while Marissa Williams ran 18:01 at NXN for 24th. Both strong performances, but in my opinion Samantha's performance was stronger on a relative basis as the Foot Locker field is generally more elite. I haven't taken the time to compare quantitatively, but that's what is likely behind the difference.
MatthewXCountry
Great job! It is really difficult once you get past the first few. Marissa WIlliams, however, is ranked way too low. Here are the merged results from the CA state meet

1 Sarah Baxter SR 2 Simi Valley 16:42.7 5:23 1848 SS
2 Fiona O'Keeffe SO 1 Davis Sr. 16:58.8 5:28 1239 SJS
3 Marissa Williams JR 1 Palisades Charter 17:04.0 5:30 481 LAS - 18:01.3 NXN (in an off race for her, still finished ahead of Collins, Clark, Aragon, and Hasz), 10:25.02 at arcadia
4 Bethan Knights SR 3 Northwood 17:07.3 5:31 1718 SS
5 Anna Maxwell SR 4 S.L.V. 17:07.8 5:31 185 CCS
6 Destiny Collins SO 1 Great Oak 17:09.0 5:32 1589 SS -18:13.1 NXN, 10:14.33 at SS masters
7 Sarah Robinson SR 1 Gunn 17:15.5 5:34 62 CCS
8 Addi Zerrenner SR 2 Dos Pueblos 17:17.4 5:34 1526 SS
9 Leigh Moffett SR 1 Clovis North 17:24.1 5:37 273 CS
10 Lauren Larocco SR 1 St. Francis (sac) 17:26.0 5:37 1390 SJS
11 Samantha Ortega JR 2 Saugus 17:26.3 5:37 1826 SS - 10:26.39 at arcadia
...
14 Amber Gore JR 2 Redondo Union 17:35.4 5:40 1763 SS
27 Caroline Pietrzyk JR 4 Malibu 17:51.5 5:45 1685 SS
54 Kimberly Coscia JR 2 South Torrance 18:16.8 5:54 1857 SS
168 Emily Beneduce FR 3 Oak Park 18:55.6 6:06 1719 SS

Now I think Collins should be ranked ahead of Williams, but I can't think of any reason why Ortega should be. Now is Ortega ranked too high or is Williams ranked to low? In head to head competition Williams has beat Ortega nearly every time on the track in 14 and in cross country in 13. I'm curious to hear about the rational behind this portion of the rankings.

Smythington found some good races for you to consider for Warner. Also I mentioned her best Holmdel Park time in comparison to Dwyer. You should consider OCP, where the Shore Conference Champs are held, more in line with the type of course the rest of the XC runners in the US generally race on.

Marin Warner is a good name to come up with. There is a good case for her making the list, absolutely. 4:49.88 for 1600 is something I could have taken a long look at. I wish she'd run something a little more indicative of her talent in the 3200 this spring.

However, I think you would find that almost everyone in the Shore Conference Champs PR'd by 30-45 seconds, if not more, which means it could have been short. There were four guys under 15 minutes in that race who never ran in the 14s again. So I think basing a ranking for her solely out of that particular race would be a stretch. But she did win it. I'll surely be interested to see what she does in match-ups with Dwyer and Lansing this fall.

Just picked up on a something:#5 Brianna Schwartz is a senior.

Warner in NJ/East: eighth at the Meet of Champions (18:36), and 19th at the Foot Locker Northeast (18:53). These were both difficult courses at 5k.

Just checked - Marin Warner also has the 25th fastest returner time in the nation at 5 K.

I believe Marin Warner (NJ) should be on this list. She has the 2nd best NJ returner 5K time and is 1/100th of a second behind Gracie Dwyer (your 49) at Holmdel.

I'm interested in seeing what Ostberg does. He was only 3 seconds off Ritz's junior 5k time.

Great job...good place to start..

Andrew Hunter could break top five by mid-season but he needs a race or two to establish his credential.
The Wilton, Conn. kid is a rising factor in the mile scene but his XC credentials are shaky, only placing 37th in New England's.. Again a race at VCP or even Wickham Park is needed to establish a national ranking.

Agreed. Spencer Brown turned it up w/ 2:28 for 1000 indoors and 4:11 mile outdoors, if he can stay healthy and be consistent, he should be in the mix.
DougB
Absolutely agree about Hunter. I expect he'll move up. Ranking the guys 2-11 was sort of like splitting hairs. Can't wait to see how some of those match-ups play out.

Robert Brandt had a great race at Mt. SAC, not quite as good the next week at state at Woodward Park. He was on the bubble right at the end.

Brandt will show his guns this xc season. Wouldn't be surprised at all if he's top 20 by the end of the season

What about Spencer Brown from Wilton, CT with 4:11.16 full mile as junior at Danbury Dream Invite?
DougB
That's a good mile, no doubt. But he doesn't have much to show above the mile this spring and was 36th at New Englands last year. Quite a few other guys ahead of him that are coming back. We'll keep our eye on him!

Sleeping on my boy Brandt. Not surprised, Loyola tends to get overlooked every preseason year after year. I say he's top 20 by the end of the year.

What about Robert Brandt? Fastest Junior on Mt. Sac last year in 14:43!
