Girls & Boys Performance Database
Here are my Pre-Season Girls Team Rankings
for Section 3 in 2000 ... I'm combining all Classes to make this list.
You can rank teams by (1) how good they have been, (2) how
good they are right now, or (3) how good they might be in the future. My
team list is simply my opinion of how good I think the teams might be at
the time of the Sectional Championships.
I did some data merging from last year's
Sectionals (actual race times and computer predicted race times) ... but
remember, last year's data is exactly that ... it's last year's data! I
used them as a guide only ... I let my own biases and opinions make the
Section 3 Team
||Skaneateles is clearly on
||OK ... I'm from Tully and
I'm biased ... so I'm supposed to pick Tully number two. I really
wanted to ... but I have enormous respect for the FM program, Coach
Aris, and the FM girl runners.
tie - Tully
Beaver River are even-up ... again!
I've been asked ... why don't the
Tully or Beaver Girls move up to Class B? I can give the Tully point
of view (and I suspect Beaver River might agree) ... We want to win
a State Championship!! At the State Level, Class B has some
outstanding teams such as Honeoye Falls-Lima ... last year, they
would have placed three runners ahead of our top runner at States.
In Class D, Beaver River and Tully have legitimate chances of
winning ... also, individuals have a better chance of qualifying for
States from the 2nd-placed Sectional Class D team ... Beaver River sent
three runners to States last year.
tie - Beaver River
||Westhill has a very good
team ... I think they're the favorites to win Class B ... If they
improve much during the year, I'm not sure Tully or Beaver River can
beat them ... another reason for Tully to stay in Class D.
tie - Liverpool
||I just can't
separate them effectively ... I know one team will emerge ... I just
don't know who.
tie - West Genesee
tie - CNS
