As the 2019 XC season slides into the halfway point, the team at MileSplitCA ran data reports, poured over invitational results, and examined year-over-year performances to produce the season's first subjective statewide division-by-division rankings for boys and girls.
In some cases, the data was thin -- some teams have yet to run at both 5K and 3 miles, have yet to field a full lineup, have dealt with injuries, and have encountered other circumstances we may not be aware of.
To the best of what we know, we made every attempt to provide a representative look at the top teams in each of the CIF's five divisions. With that, on the pages below, we present the MileSplitCA Statewide Divisional Rankings.
Rankings are compiled by Albert Caruana, Mark Gardner, Jeff George and Jeffrey Parenti. Photos by DeAnna Turner, Dan Tyree and Jeffrey Parenti.
