2017 Macomb County XC Rankings

2017 Macomb County XC Rankings
2017 Macomb County XC Rankings

I know, I said I was retiring, but my grandson isn't running this fall, and I'm not coaching soccer this year, so I have some free time on my hands! Cool

So the start of Season 18 beckons! Each year for the past 15 years (2002-2016), I have compiled weekly rankings of Macomb County Boy's cross country runners. I did the same for the Girl's from 2000-2003 and 2011-2016. For the Macomb County meet (second Saturday in October), we have a contest to see who can pick the top 21 athletes (All-County) at the meet.

I will be posting my weekly rankings here starting with my preseason listing. The first week of ranking based on actual results will take place on 9/4/17 (if enough results are available to make it worth updating).

I will publish the rules of the County Meet contest by October 1st (same as last year). Anybody who wishes is encouraged to give feedback and/or join the contest.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A quick note on the rankings:

The rankings are purely statistical, not based on head to head match ups, and are based on a runners two best course-adjusted efforts of the season. They really show a runners potential more than their actual results at any one point in the season. A runner who has two very good races and 10 bad ones may be ranked higher than somebody who has 12 pretty good races. The reason my prediction picks usually don't match the rankings is because I have a tendency to pick more consistent runners.

It's not a science, but I try to stay objective, and use statistical analysis to come up with each race's adjustments. Over the years, I think I've gotten better at figuring course adjustments, but again it is not a perfect system. Races are won and lost on the grass, not on the computer! The rankings are really more to start discussions, and should not be perceived as "predictions".

I rate each individual runner in Macomb. Each runner's time is course/condition adjusted (more art than science). To get a runners rating, I do the following:

1) if a runner has only one race rated, his adjusted time is his ranking.

2) if a runner has two or more races, I take the best two races, and the average of those is his rating (as long as the differential between the two best runs is 30 seconds or less).

3) if a runner has two or more races, but the differential between his best is over 30 seconds, I use his best adjusted time plus 15 seconds (the more inconsistent runners)

4) occasionally, I will manually tweak rankings based on head-to-head match-ups (happens sometimes), or if a runner's recent results show he is not improving (more rare). The more results I have, the better chance I have of getting more accurate rankings

The system is set up to rate individual runners, not teams, but if you do everybody (as I do), you can put them all together as if you are running a virtual County Meet.

A final note: the ratings are actually the runners expected time (in seconds) for a 5k on a relatively flat course in good conditions.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

RE: 2017 Macomb County XC Rankings
Here is the preseason Girls' Top 35 (these are the end-of-season rankings from 2016 XC for returning runners, I did not adjust at all for track or summer results, or injuries).

34 -- Lila Rode -- Fra -- (12) -- 1318.5 --
35 -- Heather Luttenberger -- HFII -- (12) -- 1321.0 --

EDIT : Rahn from ABay not running this year, so removed from ranking. I missed Westphal from ABay, as I had her recorded as a senior last year. I updated the individual rankings, but kept the team rankings the same, Anchor Bay would still be third, though they'd have a few more points.

*** First Team All-County 2016; ** Second Team 2016; * Third Team 2016

Romeo looks like the team to beat this year for County supremacy, with Eisenhower, Anchor Bay, Dakota, and Henry Ford II giving chase.

1 -- 079 -- Romeo
2 -- 091 -- Eisenhower
3 -- 099 -- Anchor Bay
4 -- 129 -- Dakota
5 -- 158 -- Henry Ford II
6 -- 183 -- Armada
7 -- 202 -- Regina


Also sixteen All-County runners return on the girls' side, including the defending champion in Duffey.


Note: preseason picks for girls is tougher than for the boys, since Freshman runners often have a big impact on a Girl's team. It is much more rare for a Freshman Boy to have a similar impact, especially early in the year. A couple of good frosh could make almost any of the top girls' teams a title contender.


Here is the preseason Boys' Top 35 (these are the end-of-season rankings from 2016 XC for returning runners, I did not adjust at all for track or summer results, or injuries).

Romeo looks like the team to beat this year for County supremacy, with Eisenhower, Dakota, DeLaSalle, and Utica giving chase.

3 -- 148.0 Dakota
4 -- 149.0 DeLaSalle
5 -- 194.0 Utica
6 -- 200.0 L'Anse Cruese
7 -- 231.0 Armada

Also, seven All-County runners return on the boys' side, including defending champion Jack Wilson from Romeo, as well as another runner who was all-county in 2015 (transfer ineligible last year).


Note - Brenden Allen (Romeo) did not run last year due to transfer rules. I ranked him just below all of the returning All-County runners.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

RE: 2017 Macomb County XC Rankings
Very rarely check this page out anymore, but was happy to find your post this morning! Good thing you put the disclaimer on Allen because I'm sure we both expect that position to change after Romeo's first race. Glad you decided to come out of retirement for one more year!

RE: 2017 Macomb County XC Rankings
As I said earlier, I rank every athlete in the county. If any runner wants to know where I have them currently ranked, they can PM me here and I will send it to them. I usually only post the top 21 for each gender.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

RE: 2017 Macomb County XC Rankings
Have gone through this past weeks races, and here are a few highlights (not changing rankings yet):

Girls: two returning unranked (not in top 35) runners had good starts to the season and will probably break into the top 25: Faith Bridgeman (12) from Chippewa Valley and Leah Bell (12) from Lutheran North. Top frosh so far is Lucy Potts from Stevenson, will probably slot into the top 50.

Boys: three runners (including two frosh) should crack the top 25 after being out of the top 35 in the preseason. Tyler Carlson (9) from Memphis, Josh Cundy (9) from Lutheran North and Cedric Grant (11) from Chippewa Valley all had nice races to start the year.

Quite a few races this week, will have first rankings out by next Tuesday. Northville, Lutheran North, Roch Adams, Port Huron, and Centerline all host invites this week.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

Team-wise, Romeo looks very good. One frosh in the top 21, another close. Most of the top returning runners have results, only two did not run in their team's first meet.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

Not a whole lot of movement this week, as a lot of teams did not race this week. Team race looks like it's going to be tight this year, as long as everybody stays healthy. Only one newcomer to the top 21, and she was #22 last week, so no big changes.

Kind of the same story on the boys' rankings as the girls' not a lot of movement this week. Only one newcomer to the top 21 (a name I did not recognize!). Also, another freshman emerged this week (from LCN). As of now, Romeo is in charge of the team race, could run without their top 2 and still probably win. Got to stay healthy though...

Doing midweek rankings due to my pending vacation. All but one of the full teams that have competed this year ran once already this week (all but Memphis), so there was quite a bit of new data, which improves the quality of the rankings.

Not a whole lot has changed, however, only one new top 21 entry, and team-wise things are pretty stable so far. Looks like pretty much all the contenders for individual spots have run at least one race by now, so rankings should be more consistent now.

Looks like the boys field is now complete with the return to competition of Andrew Goodrich. Had he not returned, we would have had two frosh in the top 21. As it is, the rich got richer, with Romeo now solidly in control of the team race, with 6 in the top 11 ranked runners (nice to go 6 deep!). They look like a potential top ten team in D-1 (they are currently ranked as Honorable mention). If they can get faster up front, they have the potential to break into the top 5 even. Time will tell...

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!

Tough conditions this past week, made it tough to do course adjustments, but I did the best I could! Another frosh broke into the top 21 on the girls' side, and Romeo had a good week taking over the top ranking for the team race, which will be a nail-biter I'm sure in a few weeks! No major shake-up in team or individual rankings, the water seems to have found it's level (for now).

No major moves on the boys' side, a couple of frosh switched positions, should be an interesting race to see who gets top frosh this year. Team-wise it's all Romeo for now, with Dakota and Eisenhower doing battle for runner-up, as they flip-flopped this week.

Try not! Do, or do not. There is no try!
