CIF D4 Girls Team Rankings
Mayfield projects as the top-ranked girls team in Division 4, according to the MileSplit database. Mayfield, an all-girls school in the Southern Section, projects 17 points ahead of Foothill Technology, also of the Southern Section and the defending State champion in this division.
Mayfield, which returns four of five scorers from a sixth-place finish at State, is led by freshman Audrey Suarez, who has won both 5K races she has competed in this season. McKenna Smith was 18th among team scorers as a sophomore last year at State.
Foothill returns three of five scorers from last year's State title team. Junior Lauren Kearney, third among team-scoring runners at State, has the team's fifth-fastest 5K time this season. Her 19:19.60 earned her 15th place at the Oct. 27 Ventura County Championships but is well below her 18:13.20 PR at this distance run at State last November. Blythe Blakeman, a junior, went 18:53.30 at the Oct. 7 Clovis Invitational, just missing her 5K PR (18:52.40) set in placing 25th at State last year.
Bishop Amat of the Southern Section, second at State last year, ranks third here.
