Full Rankings (All-Divisions) - 2020 AIA Cross Country State Championships
If divisions were teams, and we allowed all runners not in the top seven to displace, then division 1 would have won the overall state meet in 2020. With nearly a perfect score of 18 points (Lauren Ping (1), Katie Sigerud (2), Kayla Case (4), Taylor Lovell (5), Emma Baugh (6), and a gap of 51-seconds they would be far and away the top division.
Division 2 would have had a total of 40 points (MIa Hall (3), Kyah Zurek (7), Clara Jones (8), Taylor McCue (10), Merit Thompson (12)) with a gap of only 38 seconds.
Division 3 would have been third with 172 points (Kylie Wild (13), Evelynne Carr (14), Ryley Nelson (35), Cathron Donaldson (49), Wheaten Smith (61)) with a gap of 73 seconds.
Division 4 would have been fourth with 477 points (Kayla O'Connell (68), Jessica Madrid (71), Madeline McBee (80), Ayla Young (123), Indi Jones (136)) with a time gap of 38 seconds.
