Oregon XC Drew Ranks ‘em September 20th Rankings

6a Boys - Jesuit appears to be the early favorites after beating Central Catholic at Pier Park. One should expect Central Catholic to make it a much more exciting race come November. South Eugene seems to be the third best team in the state by a decent margin. The rest of the spots seem to be up for grabs. Reynolds moves into the top ten.

6a Girls - Pier Park confirmed what we already know, state will be Jesuit’s pack against South Eugene’s three big guns. Girls teams are loaded this year. St. Mary’s, Sunset and Grant look to be the early trophy contending teams.

5a Boys - Summit remains on top after their 1,2,3 runners ran 15:45, 16:06 and 16:09, while competing at the New Balance Invite. It appears that it may be more difficult to trophy at the 5a level. Franklin and Cleveland switch spots while Corvallis makes the largest jump from unranked to eighth.

5a Girls - 5a girls is by far the hardest to rank. Neither Bend or Ashland has shown their cards yet. Corvallis ran outstanding at the Saxon invite and like all my rankings, make sure you take this set (especially) with a grain of salt.
