Preseason "Terrific 20" Team Rankings: Final Words

Now that I have finished the boys team rankings, I would like to mention some things again from the Introduction. Firstly, I hope these rankings will be a motivational tool, not a demoralizer. There are probably some teams out there that feel that they should be ranked higher, or some individuals that think they shouldíve been included in their schoolís Projected Top 7. To them, I say that there are always a few runners that drop way over a minute from their PRs and surprise everyone. Be that person on your team. Train consistently and hard, but be smart; you want to peak in November, not August. As always though, have fun and make the most of your time on your high school team because youíre really not going to realize how much youíre going to miss being a part of it until you've graduated.

As of now, I donít know if I am going to make a set of girls rankings, but I probably will eventually. A common pattern I noticed looking at girlsí times is that most girls donít improve significantly from their freshman times and either stagnate or regress as they get older. This makes rankings for them much less accurate than for the boys. What I will do though is post individual boy rankings starting from rising sophomores to juniors to seniors culminating with the top overall individuals in the City. I should have the sophomore boys done by tomorrow.
