Note: A reminder, this is based on returning runners, taking a look at combined scores from a hypothetical merge of all the best teams in the state (top 37 in this case) and also considering how good the program has been over the last nine years. Because of this process, the teams don’t always stay in the same order as they did in their respective classifications (this is a smaller, more elite field of teams than is looked at for the classification rankings). It looks to me like the best teams are going to be in 5A, though the top quartet of teams in 6A are close enough that they might challenge them in the end. Individually, there isn’t much separation at the top and there are going to be plenty of challengers for the individual titles this fall.
