How many of these dream teamers beat Catarina Rocha (Providences #4 runner) at footlocker last year? Rocah and Hauger wer #2/#3 at footlocker last year and #62/63 at NCAA. Katie Knight was #3 at NXN ant #128 and Amy-Eloise Neale was #8 and was 121.
Make a list of all the freshman that have finished top 10 in the NCAA and it is a pretty short one. It happens but people that you think could do it like Hasay (18) have often come up short.
If you stick Cain, Efraimson and Baxter in the race, a some what reasonable guess is that 1 will be top 10, and the other 2 will be in the top 25. It gets to be a crap shoot after than as 10s time differences can add up to 10+ places.
Change is around so that everyone of them runs the best race of their life, then yeah you have like 3 top 10 runners and another 3 in the top 50 for an easy win.

I would include a healthy Anna Rohrer in the high school top five. I believe a dream team high school squad would beat a Providence squad that scored a rather high 141 points this year. I actually don't think it would be very close with the team having at least one or two runners in the top 10 overall, and five in the top 40. I think they would rather easily outdistance Providence on a good day. If Cain, Efraimson, or Baxter are capable of being top 10, then surely they could have two more (Cranny, Rohrer) within striking distance.
