Pre-Season ... National GIRLS Individual Profiles/Ranks - Cross Country 2022

by Bill Meylan ... July 16, 2022

Below are Abbreviated Performance Profiles for 30 top national high school female runners entering the 2022 cross country season ... I find it interesting to examine profiles of the top national girls and also compare them to the top NY girls (Profiles for the 2022 New York Girls) ... Performance data helps evaluation ... and knowing the performance level of the best national runners is always interesting ..... Opinions will differ on the ranking position of individual runners, but that's a good thing ... It's also a "necessary thing" for serious handicappers ... The order of the runners below is my current pre-season watch-list.

 

How To Read the Table Information: The number following the name is the school grade for the 2022 XC season.  The XC data begins with the speed rating for that race (higher is faster).  Selected track data are also shown.

 

Note ... These profiles provide information for those viewers who are interested in these types of stats ... Speed ratings were one major factor in runner selection and ranking ... I started with my Highest National Speed Rating List from 2021  ... Track data was also considered with handicapping opinion ... Again - the order of the runners below is my current pre-season watch-list.
