I wonder if there are Lydiard trends? Or Coe or Daniels? Are there new developments in training.

I've talked to Soles before when we had a nationally ranked team. He was very helpful and honest.
I can tell that they have all the makings of a mega power - large numbers, affluent population, GREAT COACHING, parent support, etc.
They're willing to do more than the majority of schools across the nation and that is really what is happening here. I don't just mean more mileage (team averages of 50+ miles for girls will make a great team), but they're putting in more effort, too. Count on it.
Everyone is all in and that culture starts with the coach.
I'm also interested in hearing about the Garmin data. We use them and I've noticed some patterns regarding improvement related to base phase daily run pace, tempo run pace in and out of season, etc. But I know our trends. I'm interested in those from Great Oak.
