|The future of Moco looks bright
|I'm sorry, so long as this article disregards the individual rankings, then it needs to take a closer look at these individual runners. Ever since the Georgetown Prep Classic, Chase Weaverling he has moved up from the number 4 slot to the number 2 slot on the Poolesville XC team, until he was the number 1 freshman at the MOCO XC Championships. After that, he continued to improve until he was once again the number one MOCO freshman, this time at States! Overall, it's a disappointment that the number 1 MOCO freshman at both the County Championships and the State Championships is degraded to the number three slot on this list.
|Even though Tai Dinger isn't technically from Moco he definitely deserves the number one spot here just look at his times and how he did at meets like IACs and DC-MD private school champs.
|Crilly got 17:06 at the Private Schools Championships!
|but then again, he's from moco
|Then again, St. Albans is DC. Not moco. Ridiculously fast for a freshman, and definitely someone to keep an eye on. But not moco, and not a moco freshman of the year
|the problem is that the private school guys didn't really race a lot of the public school guys... and I mean, the courses aren't comparable. Crilly and Hadley ran in the low 17's at their championship, while Weaverling and Baginski ran in the low 18's at theirs but, seriously, Hereford can't be compared to any other course. And if people don't take account how different courses are faster than others, Weaverling and Baginski both ran in the 16's at the short 2A West championship.
|between this list and the honorable mentions, it looks like
Rockville, RM, Gaithersburg, Quince Orchard, and Poolesville may be bigger threats in the next few years.
|It's great to see some of the smaller schools such as Rockville and Poolesville getting some good freshman coming in. RM looks like they will continue to have a strong program in years to come as well.
|true ^^. next year poolesville is gonna be legit in 2A.
|Micheal Spak will be good. By senior year, He could be great. Mark my words. Nay, Micheal my words
|is my man Alex Hadley running in pumps in that picture?
|tart banana |
|How is this list compiled?
|African horned cucumber|
|Maybe look at what Alex Hadley did this year before declaring it a shame that a public school runner is not #1. He raced public school runners plenty of times and just raced several more at the Battle of the Potomac.
|strawberries are the best|
|yeah alex hadley is a beast. But i think the runner to watch out for in this area is Louis Colson from Edison. He won the frosh Glory Days race and placed top 15 in the Battle of the Potomac. 17:17 and that course is super hard.
|strawberries are the best|
|actually Haben Zemichael is also a freshman. wow. but battlefield is pretty far out there
|I support the recycling of rotten tomatoes|
|Sorry that you are upset that Chase is not the #1 guy. He had a great year and has a bright future. But what about the other two ahead of him? Why dont you support them and say man it took some good freshman performances to beat this Weaverling character. My hat goes off. You act like this list will make or break his entire existence. This is not an entrance exam to Wharton my friend. Ease up.
Congrats to all the top 10 and honorable mentions. have fun
|Recycling is right. In a years time, this list won't matter. These 10 have 3 more years to duke it out, and the only thing that's certain is they are all going to be ridic
|It's crazy how much these former freshmen have changed in the past few years. Many of them are still the best in the county!
