2009-05-05 conducted an open online poll between April 27 through May 3 to determine who the local track fans think will win each event at the upcoming Montgomery County Track & Field Championship Meet. One hundred and twenty nine valid votes were collected during the given time frame. Below you will find a table of the poll winners and five expert picks. The first column on the left is the name of the event. The second column is the athlete that the majority of fans picked to win each event. The third column is the percentage of fans who voted for the poll-winning athlete. The five columns on the right of the table are the selections of five real moco fans who do excellent in prediction competitions season after season. Their true identities will remain concealed.
