(ARCADIA, Calif.) -- With several top regional championship meets taking place last weekend, there's been some juggling in the 2012 order of top California meets based on DyeStatElite marks achieved.

Based on its whopping 606 DSE's achieved, the Mt. SAC Relays moved up to #2 for the year; the Central Coast Section Top 8 meet and the Woody Wilson Invitational (Sac-Joaquin) also moved into the Top 10 for the year.

By season's end, look for the two-day state meet (predicted to be about 900 DyeStatElites) and the CIF-Southern Section Divisional Finals meet (between 800-900 DSE's) to make big moves at the top.

Here's the 2012 list, which includes all invitationals with at least 52 DSE's attained. In terms of non-invitationals, this year's Vista Murrieta-Great Oak dual meet generated 42 DSE's all by itself!
