Best team of
the Region 

Scoring 5

Christian Academy in Japan

Kanto League Champs, API Guam Champs, Kanto Invite Champs Equal to or better than  2014 ASIJ, 1996 CAJ as the best ever in the Pacific.

American School in Japan

Kanto League Champs, API Guam Champs  Beyond a doubt the strongest girls team in the history of the Pacific region.
One must carefully note that courses are very unequal. The extremely fast course at Iwakuni results in a hypothetical blowout win for Kinnick boys over everybody everywhere, despite it's 4th place finish in Kanto. The KAIAC and Iwakuni courses also produce unreal individual marks, whereas the API Guam course is slow, slow, slow. So talk about "the fastest mark in the region" is very risky. We can acknowlegde winners and those consistently near the top. Lacking a true regional championship, it is gratuitous to name an "athlete of the year."

Top Athletes in the Region

note about Kanto course: in 35 years, thousands of high school athletes have run the same, grueling course. To be in the top 10 is quite an accomplishment.

Far East Championship

Separation of Meet Top 6:
  Boys 32 seconds
  Girls 1:36
Division I
Meet's 6th place girl is 4:03 slower than 6th place boy.
Division 2
6th place girl is 5:40 slower than 6th place boy.

Suggests that Pacific DODDs girls XC programs are disproportionately lagging behind the boys, while Europe DODDs is just the opposite.

 

 

 

 

 

(For some odd reason scoring only 4.
Historical note: in 1998 there were 24 teams, this year only 15; Asia Pacific Invitational in Guam has been scoring 5 (+2) and fielding 22 to 28 teams in recent years.
)

Based on multiple head-to-head races with St. Mary's, CAJ would have had a good chance to have 5 in the top 10 overall, displacing Yokota as the small school boys champion, with ASIJ likley edging out Seoul American in big schools, on the strength of their 5th - 7th runners.

Based on St. Mary's performance at API and FE (the top 4 were 3:16 faster on the Gosser Golf Course), the total elapsed time for CAJ's front 4 would have been 60-80 seconds faster than Seoul American's top 4. Based on St. Mary's and Kinnick performances at Kanto Finals and at Far East, CAJ would have had 3 runners on the heels of Seoul American 1st, ahead of SA 2nd, with CAJ 4th runner neck and neck with Seoul 4th, CAJ 5th and 6th about a minute ahead of SA 5th.

If scoring all together, scoring 5:

1. Seoul American 55 spread 1:56
2. St. Mary's 66 spread 59
3. Kinnick 92 spread 1:35
4. Kadena 102  spread 1:31
5. Yokota 118  spread 3:10
6. Perry 156  spread 2:10

(For some odd reason scoring only 4.)
Based on season performance, ASIJ likely would have scored a perfect 10, with their fifth runner in top 7. Seisen would have been second big school.

 

If scoring all together, scoring 5:

1. N.C. Kinnick 34 spread 2:11
2. Kadena 45 spread 44
3. Seoul American 81 spread 2:57
4. Yokota 135 spread 2:13
5. Kubasaki 169 spread 6:40
6. Zama 197 spread 2:14
