The first installment to our countdown of the Top 75 Bay Area athletes of 2012-13.
Welcome to the first annual Bay Area 75 — SportStars’ countdown of the top 75 Bay Area athletes from the 2012-13 school year.
This is the first of three unveilings of a list that had to be refined several times before we were convinced we had it right. Our staff considered athletes from all nine Bay Area counties who compete in sports which culminate in sanctioned section titles. Those were the only stipulations.
When it was over, our list included at least one athlete from each county and had 14 different sports represented. All sports fans know that rankings are an opinion, and certainly subjective. They also spark debate and conversation, which is why we love them.
As you look through the first 25, we welcome you to share your thoughts on how we’re doing and who you expect to see inside the Top 50. Email us or reach out to us on on Facebook or Twitter (@sportstarsmag, use the hashtag #bayarea75).
The release of athletes #50-26 will be right here at SportStarsOnline.com on July 11, and the Top 25 will be unveiled July 18 both online and in Issue 69.
We hope you enjoy the first installment. Let the debate begin!
