Great job and reasoning by the Review Panel. Good luck to all WOC runners!

We have two changes to announce.

First, Greg officially declined his sprint start (which by the rules we were required to offer him). As the alternate, Giacomo Barbone has moved up.

And partly because of finding an error in some race results we were using to help us determine race assignments, we have decided to switch Tori Borish to the Sprint and Tyra Christopherson to the Sprint Relay.

Fantastic! These seem like excellent athlete-to-race fits.

It is most important that there are two fine and competitive forest-relay teams, after last year.
