Mandel and Collins led No. 2 ranked Great Oak to a 30-point win over No. 17 Davis and No. 12 Arcadia, though the win was hardly a surprise as the No. 2 ranked team has rolled through all of their competition this fall. They placed their top five scorers within the top 11 overall finishers with a 29-second spread and everyone at 17:55 or faster for a 17:42 three mile average.
What was a surprise was Davis taking down Arcadia, even without No. 1 runner Fiona O'Keeffe, who did not race on Saturday. Add automatic '1' point in O'Keeffe and subtract 35 points from No. 5 and their score goes all the way down to 42 points.
