BOYS NOTES

Zellman's win is the first for Ukiah since Ryan Mack won a similar great race in 1998. Of the last 19 years that the Finals have been held at Spring Lake Santa Rosa's 3rd place time of 81:04 would have been good enough to win 11 of them. There time was 55 seconds faster than what they won with last year. 1975 was the only other time of a 1st place team tie for score. Santa Rosa and Montgomery scoring 44-44 with Santa Rosa winning tie breaker. Maria Carrillo has now won 6 of last 7 Finals. Piners 2nd place team finish is there best ever in NBL. Before moving to NBL they won 14 pennants in SCL with the last being in 1985. This years Piner team's top 4 runners are sophomores with number 5 being a junior. With Montgomery's Aria Kiani not eligable to run, the Vikings probably had their first year ever with no boy in top 10. IF he had finished 5th the team scores would have been Piner 60, MC 61, SR 67, Mon. 83. Very rare for top 5 to all be from different schools. Top 16 were 8 seniors and 8 sophomores. Top 3 soph. all Piner. Only Piner and Santa Rosa's Varsity team was faster than Carrillo's JV team. Maria Carrillo's Austin Bartlett had a double impact on team championship. A number 6 runner on a team typically has no effect on the outcome but here it was the decided factor for two reason's. First his placing before Piner's 5th runner bumped their score from 55 to 56 causing the tie. Then ties are broken by placing of the 6th runners on a team so again his placing was the deciding factor in league finals match. Of course without Bartlett Carrillo still would have won the penant because a Piner win still would have left MC with 9pts counting dual season. Piner would have had 8 and Santa Rosa 7. Actual was MC 10, SR 8, P 7.

GIRLS NOTES

Julie Nacouzi 1:12 winning margin is the first over a minute since Julia Stamps in 1996. Vikings now have won more times than any other school 9, SR has won 8 times. Nacouzi is their 7th girl to win, Carrillo is 2nd with 5 girls. Maria Carrillo has now won the last 7 years. Montgomery has been 2nd all 7 years. This is Carrillo's 8th pennant surpassing Santa Rosa's 7. Since 1979 Carrillo's low score of 22 is second only to Carrillo's 2004 score of 18. Only 3 Montgomery runners and 1 Santa Rosa runner was able to break into Carrillo's top 7. Carrillo took the top 6 places in the JV race. Only Montgomery and Santa Rosa's Varsity team was faster than Carrillo's JV team.
