<p>Better spell hopeful correctly...
Can't chance based on predicted scores-look up the XC times and class year of current team members to see how competitive you are.</p>

<p>Sophmore in HS? Please step away from CC. Enjoy your final 2 years. If you are involved in EC's, continue. Other than that, be a HS kid. Seriously, the kind of kid you are coming across as is not the type that may be a good college UG. Great that you are taking things seriously, but just be a HS kid for now.</p>

<p>^^ I agree with the above. Don't worry yet, you have time! I'd suggest you follow the team website and the tfrrs.com site to follow track results, etc. You could even contact the coach now if you really wanted to, although I'm pretty sure they only really start communicating with students during their junior year.</p>

<p>Good luck! And keep it up, you sound like a fine candidate so far :)</p>
