Did this for NXN, so why not FL?
Overall, the talent level at FL was not close to NXN on either side this year.
Worley looked really strong at NXN and can finish extremely well. Gessner took NXN off and should be well rested for this race. Affolder is a stud but I don't see him making a huge jump from last year, he might be one of those guys who underperforms at nationals. Hirsch is extremely consistent but doesn't have the speed of the other guys.
Is it just me or is the strength of the girls field much, much weaker than that of NXN? I didn't recognize like any of the qualifiers names. Oh well. Lane crushed the field and Mareno is the top returnee after getting 3rd last year.
