Arcadia Leads SGV First Team Rankings for 2014

We’re three weeks in to the 2014 track season, so we have enough results for our first rankings! (Update: The rankings have been adjusted to account for the results from the Rosemead Invite.  More below.)

Using the SGV Top Ten Performers List as a guide, Arcadia High School leads the rankings with 32 athletes and relays – 15 boys and 17 girls – in the top 10 in their event.  The narrowly edged out Walnut‘s 31 athletes and relays.

While Arcadia is known for their distance athletes, a quick look at the list will show that the Apaches are a complete track team, with athletes ranked in 22 of the 32 boys and girls events.  The runner-up Mustangs are just as balanced – they are also ranked in 22 events

California has the most athletes in a single event on the boys side, with four top 10’s in both the 1600m and 3200m, while Arcadia has the best among the girls with four ranked in the 400m

Here’s the complete Top 10 (single gender schools are doubled)

  1. Arcadia – 32
  2. Walnut – 31
  3. California – 20
  4. Damien – 20
  5. Glendora – 20
  6. Monrovia – 19
  7. St. Francis – 18
  8. Santa Fe -15
  9. La Salle – 15
  10. Covina – 13

These rankings are based on 2014 results.  The database includes all invites (except Rosemead, which produces their results in a form that’s incompatible with the various results databases).  Update: After a heroic effort from meet director Fidel Dominguez, and me and the people at, the Rosemead results are in.  But unfortunately, the database only includes dual meet marks that have been publicly published or have been input by the teams themselves.  The rankings would be better and more accurate, of course, if we had every mark from every athlete.
