Help me out.

I have seen Randolph (enrollment 164) play in the summer and they were very good and I saw in the paper that they beat Waunakee (enrollment 1121) who is a solid team.

How on earth does Randolph have so many 6'4" plus players? Are they all from within the School District or do they get quite a few school choice kids?

Some school districts just grow them tall. There must be something in the water I guess...

Randolph also has the advantage of hosting there own AAU team, in which their better players start playing and develop at a younger age. This has undoubtedly helped their program with the sustainability it has had...along with a few D1 players.

They do have their own bottled water called 'Rocket Fuel' so theyre clearly sneaking HGH or some other PED into the water. Over in Markesan just 10-15 minutes away, we struggle just to get a kid or 2 over 6' 1". On a side note, it brought much joy to me to see them lose in sectionals last year when they were certain that they were gunna take state. Not so fast my friend...

Btw, i'm calling it now, there's gunna be a new conference champ in 2011.

haha I come from a town with the same problem as Markesan. Lots of good players, they are just all on the shorter side. I am sure that it did bring you a lot of joy, but Randolph would not have beaten Benton had they escaped SCC.

As far as the new conference champ, I doubt that will happen. I bet I can guess your pick though....Markesan

I heard that Randolph has a lot of Dutch people with the last names ending in "ma" like Boomsma, Steinsama, Tillema, etc, and Dutch people are ususlly tall.

I was really, really surprised though that Randolph lost the sectional final today by 20 pts to Racine Lutheran though, wow, I guess the loss gets noticed more with winning teams over mediocre teams.
