2022 NY Girls XC Preview: Overall Sweep

Top NY Teams for 2022

Using the TR speed ratings for returning runners from last year without any adjustments for great 2022 track results (except newcomers), here's the list of how the top 10 NY teams stack up, going strictly by the average brute speed ratings. Numbers in parentheses show the TR spread between the first and fifth runner on a team, and lower compression numbers are usually much better. A TR spread of 20 means that the team's top runner on average is a minute ahead of its fifth runner on a 5K course. Cornwall's 85 spread means that its frontrunner averages about 4:15.0 ahead of the number 5 spot.

Note that once the rankings begin around mid September, other factors besides raw speed ratings will be factored in to determine Top 10 list.
