We all know it was a ridiculously fast week across the state (and Arkansas, and Kentucky, and Oklahoma), but how this fast week affected the results of the fantasy cross country league was nothing short of crazy. Hoffman/Rubin had by far their best week of the season. Carried by strong performances from Chandler Gibbens, Stephen Kielhofner, and Alex Dukes, the 4th, 5th, and 6th fastest boys of the week, the three-owner team put two more boys under 16:16 to hang on for the first place finish for Week 6. Typically 5 boys under 16:16 would induce a dominating win, but in Week 6, Hoffman/Rubin was a mere 9 points ahead of yours truly. Forty-one boys were under 17:00 on the week and thirty-four of those were under 16:30. So that means a time that would usually be solid enough to score you a 20 spot or so earned you a 35 spot instead. With so many boys hitting that mark, the scoring ended up being both really bunched and really spread out at the same time. Team Wang continued their success as well with 71 points for 3rd and of course Hackett was right behind him with 77 for 4th. Team Crowe was the next closest team 52 points back of 4th.
It was a good week for Team Deeken. After benefiting from the Stampede a couple weeks ago, I was able to benefit from Chile Pepper this week as Ryan Riddle, Ryan Flood, and Ean Buffington were all under 16:00 there. My back two scorers were Easton Sabala who just continues to kill it for me this year and Haddon Spikereit with his 16:27. Unfortunately, that 16:27 was a little farther back than I would have liked, but I was pleased with in nonetheless. I had to drop him this week as Webb City looks to be idle in Week 7, but he is a candidate to be re-added next week. Check out the results and updated rosters!
