Autofocus for D90

I've been shooting BIF and have been getting some shots that I'm really happy with (attached), but others that I'm puzzled by. I know I'm going to have lots of misses, but am just trying to do everything I can to decrease the miss rate. I'm attaching a miss as well. My settings are those that I believe are recommended by Glenn Bartley and include: Tracking Sensitivity (Locked On), Accel/Decel Tracking (-1), AF Pt Auto Switching (0), AI Servo 1st Priority (Focus), AI Servo Second Priority (Focus), iTR Face Priority (Off). I am shooting manual with auto ISO and a nine-point focus field.  Any suggestions? Is it worth it to try to focus using a single point, or is that a fools errand?  Other ideas for why I may be missing a fair number (obviously not all, but many, many) of shots due to focusing problems?

Thanks!!!!

This shot I am happy with.

This shot is one of many that I shot today that were out of focus.
