    According to Milesplit's results, plus the newspapers, Amanda Rickert (DE) ran 18:57, not 18:17.

    My apologies. Trying to type too fast.
    Correction made.
    Thanks for the heads up.

  • kdyke / 2 Years Ago
    No problem, thanks for getting right on it. Except now it reads 18:15. Sorry to be a bother.
  • PFFlyer / 2 Years Ago

    Sorry for being sloppy
  • louisbustamante / 2 Years Ago
    not fair that you judge and rank on team that run various invites to teams that don't hardly run any but when teams meet at holmdel the teams with less invites beats almost the 15 ranked team in the nation.and also your #3 and pope etc.. you can't judge if they are not running in same courses ,some teams run on flat ones and some run on mountains..
  • PFFlyer / 2 Years Ago

    I'm sorry, I do not understand your point.

  • jlanza / 2 Years Ago
    @louisbustamante It's totally fair. The poll is about making judgments about the top ten teams for each gender in the state. It's all opinion and it is important to note that your opinion is as valid as those who vote in the poll (I'm one of them) as long as you study the teams and results and base your opinion on those. But not including a team because they haven't run every invitational is just wrong. Many coaches will not race a lot early in the season because they want their runners ready for the championship meets in November and December if they're good enough. In that case judgment has to be used which is what we did.
  • louisbustamante / 2 Years Ago
    my problem is you take the best times from one race and then you put them together than another runner from same team runs a race two weeks later than you take that time and you put that one on to the teams best times and so on the time the season starts to wind down you have super team ,and that is not right.. now you have a team that does not have the same amount of invites and he is buried...that is where it goes like i said it is not you said it best it is a judgement call ..i base standings on head to head..not judgement. this is not fantasy football...every course is different come run in Sussex county especially at Wallkill High School..It will be humbling experience all these 15's would be 17's all 16's would be 18's this area is very hilly. Let it be known that i like to see PR's but some have been on courses that are so flat that you can't compare..To that i will leave it at that because i do love the sport,it is a sport that we can do forever...keep on running big fan.....
  • louisbustamante / 2 Years Ago
    Now i checked your standings and you totally took our team off ,that is such childish way to prove your point i thought that we can base our opinions on your website i meant no disrespect to you or the milesplit really i am just a big fan of the sport and a father of one of your runners that competes for the state of New Jersey and Wallkill High school...
  • PFFlyer / 2 Years Ago

    That is not true.
    Wallkill Valley is currently ranked #3 in our Rankings Poll and # 10 statistically.
  • louisbustamante / 2 Years Ago
    i was mistaken with your stats ,and i thought that was the way they rank for state standings,because week one and two.. both team stats and state ranking were the same,and then i saw team individuals posting better time on under stats tab/team rankings and certain teams got bumped down...sorry for your troubles. truly a fan.and you guys do a good job,thanks for explanation.

    Passion for a team is a good thing.
