Desert Twilight Speed Ratings: Texans Rule In Arizona!

Some of Texas' top individuals and the boys teams of El Paso Eastwood and San Elizario raced at the Desert Twilight Invitational on Friday. Texas runner showed well!

In addition to racking up some impressive individual results from Ben Shearer, Judson Greer, Luke Lambert, and Lauren Portillo-Walls, Eastwood won the high school Sweepstakes race, and San Elizario punched well above their weight, taking down most of the best large schools in Arizona with a fourth-place finish.

These speed ratings are adjusted using Bill Meylan's speed ratings adjustments from; you can check out the entire races' speed ratings there. (For what it's worth, I calculated independent speed ratings based just on Texas runners, and came up with ratings two points lower than Meylan's.)
