2013 Meet Titles: 4A State, District 2 - 4A, ATC

Before I send you any further down the path of the All-New Mexico selections, some explanation about the method of selection is in order. Since State is the biggest meet of the season, and the meet that everyone trains for, state results weighed most heavily in the selections below. State, however, is not the only meet of the season. And, for a multitude of reasons, an athlete's state meet may not be the most representative meet of his season. So, where calls were close, I looked at the entire body of the season's work (or at least as much of it as I have access to), including especially meet titles. After doing that, we arrive at the following to fill out the 2013 All-New Mexico team:
