Team Comments - Kinnick boys and girls, Zama boys and girls and Yokota girls feature many new runners in their top 7. On the other hand, mostly veteran teams include CAJ and Yokota boys and the girls of Seisen and ISSH. 

Edgren’s 2018 team is larger, and has 6 returning boys but only returning 2 girls. These veterans from last year are leading both teams.
Last year BOYS top five were 1:36:45 ; this year 1:33:53 (1:52 faster). GIRLS last year 1:15:33  this year 1:16:18 (:45 slower)

Kinnick fielded a much smaller boys team, but featured three experienced seniors out front. Two freshmen and two new juniors are following the new senior on the girls team.  Last year BOYS top five were 1:25:23 ; this year 1:26:00 (0:37 slower).. GIRLS last year 1:15:33  this year 1:16:18 (0:45 slower)

Zama team size is down from last year. Five of the 6 girls are new, 3 of the first 7 boys are new.  There is only 1 senior boy and 1 senior girl on the team.
Last year BOYS top five were 1:36:17 ; this year 1:36:37 (0:20 sec slower). GIRLS last year 1:27:47  this year 1:27:39 (0:00.08 faster)

Yokota ran fewer boys on Saturday than last year, but they were mostly returning veterans; more than half of the girls team are new, but of them, the 3 ninth graders moving up from middle school replaced the three lost to graduation and are now are leading the high school. Last year BOYS top five were 1:26:45  This year 1:28:28 (1:53 slower) ; GIRLS last year 1:15:32  this year 1:18:32 (3:00 slower)

Seisen has drawn in two freshmen to replace one graduated senior. No seniors in the front 8. GIRLS last year 1:15:33  this year 1:16:18 (0:45 slower)

CAJ has only a fraction of the numbers of last year’s roster. No juniors. Last year BOYS top five were 1:20:56; this year 1:30:14 (a whopping 10:00 slower) . GIRLS last year 1:28.57  this year 1:31.36 (2:39 slower)

ISSH has no seniors in the top 9.

YIS has a large team but only 1 senior.

St. Maur also has a large but mostly new team, but has several seniors.

Observation

This first meet hints at a reversal of fortunes, with the international schools in decline and the DODDs schools in ascendancy. It remains to be seen how many athletes are added to rosters in the following weeks. From being a Far East powerhouse, St. Maur seems to have regressed almost as much as CAJ.
