Many teams around the state finished their seasons with Sectional or conference championships last week. A lucky group will continue on to States, and the CHSAA teams of the NYC area will be running for their championship on Saturday at Van Cortlandt Park. While we provided a Sectional Merge in our State Meet Previews, we did not provide the typical Overall State Rankings.
The list below is our breakdown of the standings for NY's top 30 boys teams among the NYSPHSAA schools based on their season's ratings along with their performance at their most recent championship. Most teams ran close to or a little above or below their customary ratings during Sectionals. Shenendehowa got a big boost with the return of top runner Nathan Brimhall after a month's absence to win the Section 2 Class A title. Saratoga also saw a big jump in that race that is not really represented yet in its season's ratings, and Port Washington also was a team that ran well above its season standard while taking 2nd in Section 8 Class A.
A second list follows with the rankings for the top dozen teams in the NYC area's CHSAA-PSAL-NYSAIS conferences. The PSAL and NYSAIS held their conference championships last Sunday, and the CHSAA will be holding its championship this Saturday. A detailed CHSAA Preview will be coming out tomorrow.
Note: This list has no
influence on the Federation Meet Invitations. It is simply our view of
the post-season, replacing what would have been the Nike Regional, which
is typically 30 teams deep in the Championship Session. The list will be reissued after the CHSAA and NYSPHSAA Championships, with both lists merged.
For the teams in the conferences around NYC that are not included in the Top 30 rankings above, the breakdown for the Top 12 is as follows. The rankings are heavily dependent on the place of finish at recent championships.
