Boys Cross Country Team Rankings #2
#1: Punahou (1:01.15) - Split squads at Iolani and Kaiser Invitationals. Combining JV and Varsity squads makes the Buff and Blue clearly the team to beat early in the season. Led by Brent Nakano who finished 6th overall at the Kaiser Invitational at Satoshi Mitsuda (10th).
#2: Kamehameha (1:02.11) - Young team also split squads at Iolani and Kaiser Invitationals. Outstanding crop of younger runners added to veteran runners makes this team dangerous. Although running JV, Freshmen Jeremy Kamakala and Aaron Domingo had the fastest times of the day for the Warriors at the Kaiser Invitational.
#3: Hawaii Prep - Jared Chapman led team is dominating BIIF competition. Depth and experience could have the Kamakani's competing for the State title.
#4: Aiea (1:02.37) - Experienced depth plus talented new runners equals a very good team. The Na Alii and Radford will battle it out for OIA supremacy. They are led by Brett Asato who finished 8th at the Kaiser Invitational. The team finished 5th at Kaiser, but with top JV runner would have placed 2nd.
#5: Radford (1:02.42) - First local team at Kaiser Invitational. The Rams are led by Andrew Maixner and Jeremy Winters who finished 9th and 12th, respectively, at the Kaiser Invitational. The Rams have the depth to go with their 1-2 punch and match up well with Aiea.
#6: Iolani (1:02.46) - Second local team at Kaiser Invitational. Patrick Morrissey bounced back with strong showing at Kaiser placing 2nd overall. The Raiders have added much needed depth to be a contender.
#7: Maui - Led by the Jachowski brothers and anchored by Nick who was the top local finisher at the Iolani Invitational. They will battle Baldwin all season for MIL bragging rights. The Sabers get the early season nod after edging their rivals at Iolani Invitational.
#8: Baldwin - The Bears have an excellent 1-2 punch in Ian Martin and Kainoa Guerin. Experienced depth (they were MIL Champions in 2001) will keep them close to Maui all season long.
#9: Mililani - Led by Chris Castell who finished 4th overall at the Kaiser Invitational and Ehren Ching (7th), the Trojans could compete for the OIA with development of younger runners.
#10: Kauai - Kauai returns four runners including four out of their top five. Ross Brandenburg is their top returning runner.
