Girls Team Predictions

Group 1

Kellert | I had to look at this one longer than expected. Going with Metuchen for the boys and girls sweep but don't sleep on the Mountain Lakes squad. 

Montferrat | Metuchen's 3-4-5 runners are too much for Mountain Lakes. 

Stranieri | Metuchen girls for the team sweep.

Group 2

Kellert | After the great team run and re-emergence of Wagner last weekend Voorhees should have this. 

Montferrat | Cassavell and Wagner take the Vikings (Voorhees) to MOCs. 

Stranieri | Tight team battle between Governor Livingston and Voorhees. I'll take GL, but who knows what'll happen.

Group 3

Kellert | Just like the individual outlook for this race the team battle for Group 3 is set to be a classic. I think Northern Highlands has enough firepower up front to win a close race with Midd South and Colts Neck.   

Montferrat | Northern Highlands then Colts Neck, Middletown South will get the wild card. 

Stranieri | Another battle between Monmouth County foes Colts Neck and Middletown South. I'll take Mid South in a close one.

Group 4

Kellert | A hard working Ridge team has somehow magically had a hard working North Hunterdon team's number the past few years when it came to states at Holmdel, but I think this is the year for North Hunterdon. Would be their first team Group Championship since 2000 if they pull it off. 

Montferrat | Ridge over North Hunterdon, call it a hunch. Less than a five point margin. 


Kellert | Union Catholic showed some brightness mid-season and I see them winning this year's NPA behind a strong run by Jerika Lufrano.  

Stranieri | Will be a close race between RBC and Union Catholic, but since I have to pick, I'll take RBC given their experience with Holmdel.


Kellert | Could be more of a battle than expected here but going with Villa Walsh for their fourth straight title. 

Stranieri | Trinity Hall's familiarity with the course will give them the close win over Villa Walsh in what should be an extremely close race.
