While the rankings are subjective and not based on any formula, it was disappointing to see some snubs in the final rankings: Girls #21 Sydney Masciarelli - Two #1 times, two national titles at NBNO, and a sophomore class record in the 5K. That should have easily put her in the top 10. #22 Taylor Ewert - If Trey Knight can land in the boys' top 10 for his performance in the hammer - not a particularly common event - then the American Junior record holder for the 5K (plus 3K and 10K last year) race walk, national champ in the steeple, and nationally elite distance runner should certainly be ranked higher. #42 Christina Warren - She's no Jasmine Moore, but she did win NBNO and just missed qualifying at USATF U20s. Her ranking is a bit low for those credentials. #45 Skylar Ciccolini - Not simply a #1 in the javelin for the season, but #2 all-time. There are plenty of runners and jumpers that placed significantly higher without those kinds of rankings. #46 Sarah Trainor - How do you set a national record in the 2K steeple and barely make the list? Honorable Mention, Jada Seaman - Won a national title in the long jump and was All-American in the 100 at NBNO... And not top 50. Rude. Boys #32 Ryan Oosting - 4:03.7 for the full mile is pretty impressive. There are plenty of years that would've easily been a #1 event ranking. #36 Joe Waskom - Like Oosting, his 4:03.73 for the full mile is a stellar time. There are a handful of distance runners ranked well ahead of them with slower 1600 times. #39 Joseph Fahnbulleh - His times may not have been the best in the country, but at NBNO, he was. Twice, in the 100 and 200. A double winner at nationals shouldn't be ranked this low. #40 Aaron Shirley - He won an individual title at NBNO in the 400 hurdles and a relay title in the shuttle hurdles. How many national titles does one need to break into the top 25? #41 Devin Roberson - National title in the discus, #1 throw of the year, and top combined thrower for shot/disc. C'mon, show some love for the throwers. #47 Ashton Allen - After being ranked pretty generously during the indoor season, he's being treated like an afterthought here. National runner-up in the 200 at NBNO and a key cog for two winning relays should've elevated him higher than this. Anyone else care to weigh in?
