BOYS TEAMS #62 AND BEYOND KICK OFF 2012 CROSS-COUNTRY COUNTDOWN


By Rich Gonzalez

(Across Hill and Dale, Calif.)  As the 2012 high school cross-country season quickly approaches, runners throughout the Golden State are laying down the foundation for success, building up their aerobic base in recent weeks and establishing the teamwork bonds vital during the season.

DyeStatCal will be rolling out extensive season previews over the course of the next several weeks, including our "Hot 100" boys and girls team rankings from across the state, divisional state rankings, section rankings and individual rankings.

We'll start off with the "Boys Hot" 100 team rankings, then shift over to similar sets for the girls, then interspersing sectional and individual rankings as we continue deeper through the "Hot 100" teams all the way to Number One.

The team rankings are based on our deepest assessment ever of the Golden State landscape, placing greatest emphasis on previous cross-country performance of current team members, but will also take into consideration any track and field performances in the distance races in past seasons. The rankings assessment takes into consideration performances from various competitions throughout the year, not just the state and sectional competitions. Doing so allows us to determine the best gauge of the true pecking order across the state.

Our posting procedure for the "Hot 100" teams will be a two-step process for each set of 20 teams posted. Step 1 involves an ALPHABETICAL and simple listing of the 20 team names in each block set, followed a day or two later by Step 2 as those twenty teams are then listed in RANK order and with accompanying capsule profiles of their 2012 season outlook.

So check out the list below and then check back later as we continually update the "Hot 100" countdown within the deepest state in the nation!

See you on the trails!
