A couple of quick takeaways.
-Carmel boys are the team to beat like we thought they would be.
-Noblesville beats Fishers by only 3 points, but Click running the way he should probably makes this a 10 point victory. Regardless, I think Fishers is a genuine contender for that number two spot
-Sam Q is an individual title contender
-HSE girls might be the second best team in the state right now.
-HSE boys are the team of the future with 8/12 in the varsity race returning, and a dominating win in the JV race where the top 14 boys will return for next year.
Yeah I think Carmel is hungry for NXN this year after not qualifying last year due to the absence of their #3 at NXR

What is going on at Indy Cathedral with the coaching situation?
Seems Brad's troubles from Fort Wayne and Angola have followed him to Indy....
Nobody cares about Indiana running. Post it on Indiana Runners with the other 4 people that care.
Well I just got into understanding the new post-season format. I like that we are reducing the length of post season because 4 rounds was a bit much. Hope this leads to less hijinks of teams resting their best runners throughout the season.
But I have a couple gripes. I see that central Indiana finally got their way and have gamed the system so more teams from the suburbs are advancing. Congrats to them, hope it works out to a more competitive state meet so we can have the 10th Indianapolis suburban mega school qualifier get 21st place (do I sound salty, because I am).
Also, if I understand it correctly, we have 15 individuals on non-qualifying teams that advance to the next round? So 75 individuals to each regional and to the state meet? Seems like a lot of individual qualifiers and creates 250-runner regionals. I suppose this is a compromise to allow more small school qualifiers to get through, but some of those qualifiers will not be very competitive. I feel like 10 individual qualifiers from each sectional/regional is a better compromise and actually captures the appropriate amount of talented individuals.
Speaking of small schools, this new format screws them over a bit. Under the old format, we all knew the central Indiana semi-state was brutally competitive due to the growth of the region, but usually most schools had a chance to advance to regionals or even semi-state unless they were in a particularly competitive regional. Advancement to regionals or semi-state was a HUGE achievement for many schools in the 1A and 2A sizes and gave extra incentive. Looking around at the quality of schools in the regionals, it's quite easy to identify 5-10 schools in each regional that will basically crowd out the smaller schools from ever advancing to state. Maybe a generationally talented small school comes out of the Fort Wayne or Evansville regional, but I'm basically seeing no chance for small schools in the other 3 regionals. Maybe this increases the competitiveness of the state meet overall, but I think the implications for small schools only accelerates the trend towards a multi-class tournament.
Anyways, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Maybe I will be surprised and more small school runners and teams will squeak through.
You’re on Indiana Runner too… “ifd179”
I've never had an account on Indiana Runner.
Then why are you reading this thread if you don’t care?
Is it just me or do these Brownsburg Invite times seem fast?
I think Brownsburg is very solid this year, but these times seen quick across the board. Some big improvements over last year for athletes.
