Fantasy Cross Country Week 9: Playoff Teams Are Set

Finally. I FINALLY got a week victory. Helped along by some tough district courses and a good chunk of elite runners on the quicker courses, as well as Class 1 stud Easton Sabala hopping on a quick course in his own right, I was able to secure a 2 point victory over Team Szabo in Week 9 and clinch 3rd in the regular season. Team Hackett and Wang had both pulled away long ago, so the fight for third had been on for about 4 weeks now. Another sub-16:00 from Ryan Riddle (it's like clockwork with this guy) and two more sub-16:20, (Ryan Flood stand up!) Ean Buffington's 16:32 was an important 4th and in a week with some slower back-end scorers, I was not as hurt by a 16:50 as I had been in the past. 

Team Szabo put up a good fight this week as his West Plains boys stepped up big for him, but the big performance by his team vaulted him into a tie with Hoffman/Rubin for 4th. The top 4 teams were to move on to the semi-final in District/Sectional week, but this year Szabo made it 5. Now 5 teams will be competing for the coveted Woofie's Hot Dog this year and, though it appears to be Hackett and Wang as the front-runners, Week 10 lineups are in and if we are talking about course advantage, the top 2 teams this week have to be Deeken and Szabo for having the most boys going to Camdenton.
