Notes by John Dye on the rankings

Victory in the Race of Champions at the Great American Cross Country Festival in Charlotte September 22 propelled Kingwood TX to the top of the boys list, and the rest of the top 10 was thoroughly scrambled by the Great American and other results, especially in California. Nine of the top 10 boys teams moved up in the third list of the season; six of the previous top 10 dropped out.

Previous #1 LaSalle Cincinnati slipped to 2nd, which was their Great American finish, and North Mecklenburg NC moved up from 4th to 3rd. After that, there was chaos. McFarland CA soared from 23rd to 4th after upsetting four ranked teams in the Clovis CA Invitational Saturday October 6. Two previously unranked teams hit the top 10: Farragut TN landed in 5th position after a strong showing at Great American, and Davidson Hilliard OH charged into 8th after winning three straight meets, including a win over #2 LaSalle Cincinnati. Three more teams moved up from the Super 25 to the top 10: #6 Canyon CA (formerly #12), #7 Milford MI (#17), and #10 Jesuit (#15). Former #2 Mead WA, which lost to Jesuit at Stanford, dropped out of the top 10. For the complete Super 25, subscribe to The Harrier.

The girls side was calm, with only one new face -- York Elmhurst IL at #10 -- and one dropout, Murrieta Valley CA.
