With that in mind, let's look at who's coming to Woodward Park from each section on Saturday, and which teams and individuals have the best chance of going home as champions. Division 1 Boys Preview: It's entirely possible that those two teams could go at the state meet again, as they did last year, and it may not be as close this time around.
There was an point gap behind the Dolphins at Mt. SAC last weekend, which could open the door for a spirited competition for third place if none of the contenders can catch the top two teams. Ventura seems to be the consensus 3rd-best team out of the Southern Section, but after them it gets a little jumbled. California Whittier had a tremendous performance at the finals last weekend, which should add a confidence boost to a team that has run with ambition all season.
On the other hand, looking at season-best times, you could go with Arcadia or Burroughs Burbank. Those two seem to do better on flatter, faster courses, and could find Woodward Park more to their liking than Mt.
SAC was this past Saturday. Burroughs was 4th in last year's state meet. Madera South finished 3rd last year, representing the Central Section well, and could very well end up there again with a good race. The chief contender to Great Oak and Dana Hills could be Jesuit, though - the Marauders took 3rd when these 4 teams squared off at Woodward Park earlier this year for the Asics Clovis meet, and they were only 18 points behind Dana Hills there.

Davis trailed Jesuit by just 10 points in the Sac Joaquin finals, though, which could mean the Blue Devils are also in contention for the top 5. Individually, it would be a huge upset if anyone got past Phillip Rocha. The Arcadia senior continues to roll, posting the top times in every meet he has run even when he doesn't necessarily always face the other elite runners.
Last weekend, Spencer Dodds Great Oak gave Rocha a really good race, staying within two seconds of the 2-ranked runner in the nation, while Garrett Reynolds Ventura was the only other guy to break 15 on the Mt.
The LA City Section puts up a potential top-5 runner in Paul Luevano Venicewho has a huge time from a flat 3 mile course that seems to indicate great potential. The top contender to the Southern Section individuals, though, is most likely Davis' Michael Vernau, who has earned respect with big races all season; he won the SJS by 20 seconds.
Interestingly, two top returners from two different teams have struggled to stay ahead of their own teammates this season; Jake Ogden was 3rd last year for Dana Hills and could be rounding into top form just in time, while Sean Kurdy has seen Ben Holland take up the role of 1 runner for Jesuit.
Division 1 Girls Preview: Jeff George The biggest question of the meet is very simple: After a spectacular start to the season that saw her post performances that led the nation at the time her 3 mile time still doesthe Davis senior has not raced since October 7th due to some nagging shin pain. The word was that she could have raced two weeks, but was held out to try to complete her recovery as her team did not need her to advance.
Even if she is back, will she be sharp enough to contend for the title after such a long break from racing? It might not matter, because her best 5K is 32 seconds faster than anyone else in the state! In her absence, teammate Sofia Castiglioni established herself as a potential top-5 runner individually. One wild card in the individual competition: Kristen Leung Lowell clocked Of course, you have to expect Brooke Starn Monte Vista to be right in the thick of things after she posted the best time of all the girls at the Mt.
Will any of those individuals be able to stand up to the onslaught of Southern Section talent? Great Oak has two individuals that could threaten the top 5, but they seemed to hold back to run together as a team last weekend. The Wolfpack's most consistent performer up front all season has been Evelyn Mandel, although you can never count Destiny Collins out after all, she was 3rd last year.
Although she didn't have her best race last weekend, Holly Lung Arcadia has put up some big times this season and should be a factor at Woodward Park.

The team competition hinges on that initial question above, and this is one of the few divisions in the state meet where the Southern Section does NOT have several top-5 quality teams. Defending champion Great Oak, ranked 2nd in the nation, dominated last weekend and advanced easily, posting a point victory over Vista Murrieta.
The only other team from the Southern Section that could make a splash is Arcadia, who finished 6th on a rough day at Mt. SAC last Saturday but has established more than enough credibility with several strong regular-season performances. The team that really has a chance however small to dethrone the Wolfpack is Davis, and then only if O'Keeffe is racing and running well; the Blue Devils rolled up only 23 points at their section finals without Fiona, but they have no shot at a state title unless they're at full strength.
Likewise for two Central Section powers, Clovis North and Buchanan - they battled to the wire at their section final last Thursday, with the Broncos claiming a 4-point victory and don't underestimate Lauren Moffitt as an individual, either, as she won by 25 seconds. Division 2 Boys Preview: Jeff George The top 10 individuals from the D2 race are gone - 9 of them were seniors, and Garrett Reynolds has moved into Division 1.
That means the door is wide open as far as the individual championship contenders go, and it could be Dylan Scarsone Canyon Anaheim Hills that walks through it.
After a convincing win at the Southern Section finals, Scarsone has to be brimming with confidence, while some of the earlier contenders in the division have struggled lately. Runners like Ryan Tate SaugusAndrew Clusserath Rocklinand Stephen Khan Ayala all posted eye-opening performances at some point during the season, but none won their sectional. Look to the Bay Area for two more strong challengers: Scarsone and Lamberth aren't just individual contenders, either - they lead a Canyon Anaheim Hills team that has a legitimate shot at the championship.
The Comanches will have to overcome Southern Section champion West Torrance to win, something they could not do last weekend. In fact, all 7 advancing teams from Mt.
SAC look like potential top squads at Woodward Park, setting the stage for another potential Southern Section domination of this division. Mira Costa grades out particularly well in our virtual meet, but they barely held off Loyola and Claremont last Saturday. West Ranch has had some strong performances this season, and let's not forget that Agoura finished 2nd in Division 3 last year. Who could potentially break up this potent Southern Section cartel? Bella Vista looked strong in taking the Sac Joaquin finals, and St.
Francis Mountain View emerged from an intense Aside from those two, all of the section finals races in this division were highly competitive with relatively high scores and no dominant teams. Division 2 Girls Preview: Jeff George The battle between Saugus and Serrano has raged all season, and it should come to a peak this weekend. Saugus is the defending state champion and also won last weekend's Southern Section title narrowly. Serrano was 4th last year but has been neck-and-neck with their rival all season, as evidenced by their scant 4-point loss at Mt.
The next group of teams was over 70 points behind these two, making them the favorites to battle it out for the title in Fresno. That second cluster includes Claremont, Mira Costa, and Capistrano Valley, all of which are capable of making the top 5 at Woodward Park.
Interestingly, the top non-Southern Section contenders also battled in pairs in their respective section finals. Bella Vista defeated St.
Francis Sacramento by only 9 points in the SJS finals two weekends ago which could mean that the teams will be better-rested than their counterparts from SoCal. Granada won by 15 over Redwood in the North Coast Meet of Champions, as the two teams pulled away from the rest of the field. With the approval of the bishop, they initiated a drive to raise funds for the purchase of a piece of property.
