California Cross Country 2001

California All-State #6

DyeStat individual rankings as of November 26

by Brett Harvey

Boys - Girls


1. Billy Nelson, Taft. His 15:22 trailed only Leal on the day. Even more telling, Nelson was 37 seconds ahead of 2nd place and he ran through the worst weather of the day.

2. Yong-Sung Leal, Arroyo San Lorenzo. Fastest time of the day at California State Meet. His time of 15:17 won the Division II race by 17 seconds over #3 Dambrowski.

3. Carl Dambrowski, Granada. Gave Leal the closest challenge he's had. His time, 15:34, was the third fastest of the day.

4. Erick Maldonado, Don Lugo. How about this guy? Flies from 9th in last week's rankings to #4 now. His win in the Division I race was over the deepest field in any of the State Divisions. Hey, and he even cried after winning, you can't beat that for emotion. He's moved up each week and has been improving week after week. I would not be surprised to see him among the top group challenging for one of the tickets to Nationals along with Nelson, Leal and Dambrowski.

5. Luke Llamas, Canyon. Took runner up behind Maldonado and as he has all year, led his Canyon teammates to an overwhelming victory. He lead a 19 second 1-3 spread and an even more astonishing 28 second 1-4 spread as Canyon #4 Troy Werner ran his best race of the year.

6. Tim Nelson, Liberty Christian. Nelson jumps big from #13 a week ago as he gave one of the biggest surprises of the day with his blazing 15:35 win at the Division 5 race. He upset previous #3 Henry Hagenbuch in the process.

7. Henry Hagenbuch, Cate School. Slides down 4 spots after the surprising win by Nelson.

8. Brett Gotcher, Aptos. Read below. Excellent race at the States, edging Poe by an eyelash.

8. Mike Poe, Etiwanda. Well he and Gotcher finished in the same time at States, so I guess a tie is about what you have to give them?

10. Kevin Davis, Clovis West. Took a fall from #4 after fading to 5th in the Division I final.

11. Babey Wagnew, Helix. Didn't see him for a while, but man he had a good day at States! 15:41, trailing only #2 Leal and #3 Dambrowski in the race. Also beat previous #8 Hadden. These two sophomores should have some battles the next two years!

12. Mario Grijalva, Highland. Had been hanging on the bubble of being ranked for a couple weeks now, but he exploded to finish 4th behind Wagnew in a stellar 15:49 effort.

13. Michael Hadden, Woodbridge. The sophomore drops 5 spots despite a very solid 15:50 5th place finish in Division II. It's tough being a sophomore when the guys in your race are named Leal, Dambrowski,fellow sophomore Wagnew and Grijalva. Look for BIG things from this kid next year.

14. Kyle Alcorn, Buchanan. Moves up 6 spots from last week as he raced to a 15:52 7th place finish in the Division I race.

15. Jameson Mora, Canyon. Business as usual as Mora finished a great season as the #2 for Nationally ranked #2 Canyon with his 15:54 8th place effort in Division I.

16. Juan Robles, Valencia. 15:51 effort was good for 6th in Division II just a tick shy of #13 Hadden.

17. Mark Batres, Don Bosco Tech. Stays at #17 after a solid 15:52 7th in Division II.

18. Austin Ramos, Jesuit Sacto. Emerged as a big time runner at Division I grabbing 6th place in a stellar time of 15:51.

19. Will Kramer, Saratoga. Division III winner in 15:57. Won with a strong kick at the finish.

20. Troy Swier, Mar Vista. His 8th place finish in 15:55 in the Division II race won by Leal squeeks him in just ahead of fellow 15:55's Philip Reed and Brandon Lucero who were 9,10 in Division I.

*Can anyone tell me what happened to Jordan Kinley and Jordan Horn?

1. Amber Trotter, Ukiah. Took on the weather and everyone else and scorched everyone with a blazing 17:01, the 4th fastest time on the course ever and by 45 seconds the fastest time of the day. A whopping 5:29 per mile average. The prohibitive Footlocker Favorite looks ready to rock n roll next weekend at the Footlocker West Regional.

2. Jenna Timinsky, San Dieguito Academy. Her time was not as fast as some of those who got tugged along for the ride with Trotter, but her 18:25 still nabbed her the top spot in Division III. Defeated #5 Julie Allen, #13 Melissa Grelli, #9 Shannon Rowbury and #8 Michelle Gallagher in the race.

3. Emily Vince, Peninsula. Had the #2 time on the day with her 17:46 runner up to #1 Amber Trotter in the Division I race. Moves up 3 spots.

4. Julie Allen, Corona Del Mar. Moves up a spot despite losing to #2 Jenna Timinsky in the Division III race. Trailed Timinsky by only 4 seconds finishing in 18:29.

5. Clara Horowitz, Hilton Head Royce. Made a big move up in the rankings after her stellar run of 17:55 to win unchallenged in the Division V. Her time was the #3 on the day and left her the biggest winner, with runner up Kristin Cohoon finishing :48 seconds behind her.

6. Ruth Graham, Gunn. Upset previous #4 Caitlin Chock in winning the Division II race by 10 seconds in 18:08. Moves up 4 spots.

7. Caitlin Chock, Granite Bay. Falls back 3 spots after finishing runner up in Division II to #6 Ruth Graham. Her time of 18:18 was the 7th best of the day. Chock is only a sophomore!

8.Jenny Aldridge, Maria Carillo. Drops one spot with her 3rd place finish in the Division II race.

9. Sarah West, Davis. This senior saved her best for last as she showed up big with the #4 time of the day, finishing 3rd in Division I in 18:10 trailing only #1 Trotter and #3 Vince.

10. Liza Pasciuto, Murietta Valley. Failing to qualify for states (she collapsed at the SS finals the week before.) does not take away from the great season Liza put together as the #2 runner in the state for most of the year. After an easy win in the Southern Section Prelims she missed out on States. She was at the top of a stellar sophomore class in California this season.

11. Melissa Grelli, Presentation. Grelli continued her impressive finish to the season moving up 3 spots after racing to a bronze medal finish behind #2 Timinsky and #4 Allen in Division III. She is also only a sophomore!

12. Danielle Schuster, Torrey Pines. May as well call this year's states the day of the sophomores as Schuster the 4th sophomore to be ranked in the top 12 shot to a surprising 4th place finish behind #1 Trotter, #3 Vince and #10 Grelli in 18:15, the 5th fastest time of the day!

13. Bridget Duffy, Saint Mary's College. The senior finished out her prep XC career with a Division IV State Title in 18:33.

14. Shannon Rowbury, Sacred Heart Cathedral. Finished out a stellar season and prep career with a 5th place finish in Division III in 18:50.

15. Michelle Gallagher, Sacred Heart Cathedral. Finished the season the way this talented junior ran most of it, a place behind teamamte and #13 Rowbury as she finished 6th in Division III.
