Meet Preview

Mitty: David Page had a 17:18 best at Toro in 2006.
Cupertino: Mrinal Bedi (2:05) & Abiy Gebreskristos (16:07-CS) will lead this 1-2 punch, question is - 
           who will be 1 and who will be 2.  Peter Chew should keep both these guys honest.
Homestead: Nick Oliver (16:16) will lead the 'stangs.
Lynbrook: Luca Signore (17:06) and Gene Burinskiy (17:25) should continue their tandem running with
          Amrit Subramanian (17:35) & Eric Surprenant (39.7 300IH) pushing the pace as well.
Pioneer: Unknown team with Ryan Ravel (18:29) - this is their first year running on the Lynbrook course.
Wilcox: Daniel Tejera (17:11) and David Rios (17:12) will make the year interesting if they race
        this close together at all the meets.
Mt View: Big squad.  Garrett Rowe (16:54) and Ian Myjer (16:55) are also tightly bunched.  Lots
         of depth in this team.
Los Altos: Eric Safai (17:28) and Brad Stabell (17:30) are up front, runners 3-5 will need to step
           it up.
Saratoga: Kian Banks (16:52) and Alan Menezes (16:55) lead the Falcons.
Prospect: Jared Tranberg (18:24) leads with alot of unknown marks for the rest of the crew.

Should be a tightly run pack up front with Oliver of Homestead being the favorite.  After that it can be
anyones race.  Mt View has the depth and should take the team title with Cupertino there to give them a
run for their money.

Mitty: Aisha Lott (20:18) was a hurdler in track, will be interesting to see how it's helped her endurance.
Cupertino: Sumika Shiokawa (18:15) is the runaway favorite for the day.
Homestead: Kristen Peanaski (19:07), Emily Evans (19:12) & Laura Pochowski (19:49) make this the team favorite.
Lynbrook: Cindy Ju (19:59) is back for her 4th year and is joined by frosh Cindy Huang (2:14 800).  Michelle 
          Yee, Lauren Tang and Kristen Bryson give the Vikes an outside shot at Homestead.
Pioneer: If Toni Sarge (5:04 1600) skips club soccer for XC, she could really make the race interesting.
Wilcox: Peiley Lau (20:28) leads the way for the Chargers.
Mt View: Mary Reynolds (18:26) with four others under or at 20:00.  As with the guys, their depth will help.
Los Altos:  Holly Yort (20:11) is the front runner here.
Saratoga: Katie Nast (18:32) is top dog and ran an excellent 11:21 3200 last track season.
Prospect: Rebecca Habtamu was the NorCal Junior runner of the year for the SJS section and now attends
          Prospect.  She will be someone to watch.

Shiokawa is still the favorite for she knows the course but Habtamu will be right there with her the whole
way.  Can you say 'kick'?  For this is what it will come down to.  Nast should hold tight with the group
but will need a kick if she is to stay with the front two.  Homestead & Mt View will fight for the team 
title and Lynbrook could make it an interesting 3-way affair (unless the coach has overrated his team for
this early season meet).  Anyway you look at it, it will be a fun day for all.
