That's great they had an incredible top 4, too bad this is about the greatest TEAM ever. Last time I checked, a team consists of 7 girls and 5 scorers.
Take any cross country team...one year they place 4 runners in the top 21 at sectionals, the 5th runner is in the 40s, 6th runner behind her and there is not 7th runner.
The next year they only place 3 in the top 20 but place all 5 in the top 30 and all 7 in the top 40 with another three runners who are pretty much interchangeable with 6 and 7.
The latter team is clearly better. The fifth and sixth runners can easily make or break a team. Having a front runner is great but can only carry you so far.
