i think wooton girls, b-cc boys, and richard montgomery boys are ranked a little low, while churchill boys and magruder boys are ranked too high

2008-10-13 20:14:18

ditto on the rm boys

2008-10-13 20:20:16

I can't believe I forgot to vote in this.

2008-10-13 20:28:04

the girls poll is gonna rape my score...

2008-10-13 20:59:29

Yea, RM is rated a little low

2008-10-13 21:09:09

sherwood and damascus boys team definitely have the capability to beat churchill

2008-10-13 21:33:32

on the girls side, i think that wj and sherwood are ranked lower than they'll place. and the rm boys are definitely ranked too low..

2008-10-14 08:49:41

D-mas has a chance at northwest i think

2008-10-14 10:14:21

If you are talking about girls, Daamscus will be lucky to be 2nd. They have no chance at beating Northwest.

2008-10-14 11:57:25

RM is running well right now so I would say they are ranked a little low.

2008-10-14 12:43:20

RM is definitely ranked low. They are a 5 to 7 slot, not 10. In a big meet like counties Gaithersburg and Magruder have no chance against RM's pack. Also, RM has beaten Magruder already this year (see G-burg tri-meet). Sherwood and Damascus are underranked too and the Damascus girls have a really good shot at beating Northwest girls.

2008-10-14 15:29:25

i think sherwood can take down wj and churchill if they run well on race day

2008-10-14 17:01:36

for boys, i think damascus can own nw have you seen their pack?! its like the rm pack on drugs

2008-10-14 18:57:51

i think that d-mass is gonna win their good this year

2008-10-14 19:07:26

Anonymous Damascus fans "think" Damascus girls will win because they don't think. NW 3-4-5 vs. DAM 3-4-5 are about the same, but NW's 1-2 is so much better. NW 1st, QO 2nd, DAM 3rd.

2008-10-14 19:19:50

ditto on the last comment. nw and qo are two of the stronger teams. i would say nw, qo, damascus, churchill.

2008-10-14 19:44:44

ok Wootton girls are ranked low. Jessie Rubin is gonna rock counties. Wootton's number 2 runner is good. They will get top 5

2008-10-14 19:47:15

wooton girls will get 4th, AT WORST

2008-10-14 19:47:59

yea rm boys will probably get 8th

2008-10-14 19:51:26

where's the respect for RM? Gaithersburg and Magruder stand no chance against RM's depth. 5th at counties (boys).

2008-10-14 19:53:02

whoever said RM finishes 8th is crazy., so Gaithersburg, magruder, and bcc are all better??? explain so

2008-10-14 20:04:50

i think he meant that since had the rm-magruder-gburg trimeet been scored like an invitational, as counties will be, and not a dual meet, they would have beaten both other teams. as it is, they only beat magruder score-wise. as for bcc, they have never raced eachother yet this year, so that is up in the air

2008-10-14 20:34:08

yeah most def. BCC vs RM is up for grabs. depends on how good BCC's 5-7 are cuz the 1-5 is pretty even

2008-10-14 21:05:40

No comment on the RM/Gburg/Magruder debate. Let the race decide:) It will be clear at the next three meets. One of those teams will surprise many.

2008-10-14 21:13:18

actually RM and Magruder would have tied in a tri meet score. :) RM would win on the 6th man. In a big meet like counties - magruder front runners give them an advantage.

2008-10-14 21:26:07

more like front runner

2008-10-14 21:52:43

Relax with the RM argument. Sherwood boys will beat Churchill but most likely cant beat WJ unless they run very well

2008-10-14 22:16:50

Too much Rm pride here, Magruder top 2 will place top 8 in counties and they now have a much more reformed pack after them. so the sleeper truly is magruder but will not place higher then 4th.

2008-10-14 22:27:28

qo girls have one of the best 1-3's in the county. they have a solid 4-6 also. i think they'll get runner up

2008-10-15 08:24:51

RM's boys really aren't that good. I think everyone is giving them way too much credit. The tri meet was a fluke. Gburg and Magruder both stomp them at counties along with the rest of the field.

2008-10-15 08:55:26

WJ wins easy. 86 points..Churchill 2nd with 100, Damascus 101, NW 102, Sherwood, 104, Magruder 105, Whitman 140, BCC 150, RM 160, Gburg 165

2008-10-15 11:58:06

I think it will be a liiiiitttle more spread out than that. Tenth place won't score 165 points. Fifth place might score 165 points. Tenth place more like 265.

2008-10-15 12:01:24

yeah, it prolly will...if someone wants to have a competition, I'll take some more time n actually figure it out... Anyone interested?

2008-10-15 13:24:01

There's almost as many anonymous comments as there were votes. I hope all of the critics voted!

2008-10-15 17:55:18

thanks for that comment kevin. now what do u think the top 10 boy teams will be?

2008-10-15 20:35:27

Top Ten Boys: WJ Churchill Northwest Damascus Magruder Sherwood RM Whitman QO Gaithersburg

2008-10-17 23:18:04

i wish my team (gburg) was better, but honestly i gotta say rms gonna beat us

2008-10-18 13:52:35

RM 5th place, haterzz!
