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 36 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). Tahoma actually scores better in every measure except one: program history. If this was based on returning runners alone, Tahoma would be the #1 team in the state going into the season. They are looking very strong this year. By the end of the year, I think both North Central and Tahoma are going to look like potential US Top-10 teams, maybe even both US Top-5.
