The clear favorite to start the season would be Jurupa Hills, as they come off a 5th place finish at State and return everyone.  The Spartans are rock solid through four with a 44-second gap, and while there is a drop off to #5, they have a 15-second gap between #5 and #8, so if any pick up their game, they will be in great shape.  Yucaipa projects to trail by about 30 seconds and have an incredible 28-second 1-5 gap, but the Spartans are better up front with Michael TeranSerrano and Rancho Cucamonga have similar team times, well behind the top two, but comfortably ahead of #5, but that is where the similarities end.  Serrano has a 50-second gap, with no one under 16:00 at Mt. SAC, while the Cougars are very strong up front with the top returning time in the County at Mt. SAC in Mat Holton (15:21), but are in need of a 5th runner.  While Serrano has the better time by a few seconds, Rancho Cucamonga has better upside as they can close the gap quickly on the top two if they can get a 5th under 17:00.  Things get really tight after that as a minute separates teams 5-8.  Teams 9-12 have a projected 10-second differential.


1.  Serrano
            *impact transfer not factored in... word is that sophomore Alexis Ramirez of Oak Hills HS, will attend Serrano HS this year (19:02 at Mt. SAC/5:16.71 - 1600)
2.  Yucaipa
3.  Ayala
4.  Colony
5.  Redlands
6.  Granite Hills
7.  Rancho Cucamonga
              *projected impact freshmen not factored in...Erin Holton has been racing #1 for the team this summer
8.  Etiwanda
              *projected impact freshman not factored in...Jacquelyn Hill listed on's pre-season all-state freshman team
9.  Rim of the World
10.  Citrus Valley
              *projected impact freshmen not factored in...Claire Graves listed on's pre-season all-state freshman team
11.  Sultana
12.  Chino Hills
13.  Los Osos
14.  Chino
15.  Apple Valley

On paper, Serrano returns the #3 team time in County history...and no one is within 2 minutes of them.  They are a clear favorite to stay on top of the rankings all season with three sub-18 minute marks at Mt. SAC, two of those coming courtesy of the Fairchild sisters.  The Diamondbacks do have a gap to their #4, but most teams would like to have their #4 and #5 runners under 19:20.  If they progress, they could challenge for the County record.  Yucaipa has an outstanding squad returning, a top 15 team in County history, so we have them firmly entrenched in the #2 spot, as Tori Dutchover will try to lead the Thunderbirds back to the State Meet.  Ayala and Colony are very close at #3-4, but we favored the depth of the Bulldogs, led by sophomore Sydney Tullai.  The Titans were hit by graduation, but are solid up front with Katrina Fix and will be very dangerous if they shore up the #5 spot.  Another drop takes us to Redlands and Granite Hills, two very solid teams with the Terriers strong through 4, but need help in the 5th spot.  Granite Hills, led by Katie Deimling, will be very good...and even better if they can get their #4-5 runners under 20:00.  All alone at #7 is Rancho Cucamonga...trailing #6 by over 2 minutes and ahead of #8 by over 2 minutes.  Look for the Cougars to trend up, as they have picked up an impact freshman that may be their top runner.  The #8-13 teams are only separated by 50 seconds.
