Each year after the first couple weeks some names start showing up over and over as some of the top runners in the state or in their classification. These athletes have their own followings on their team and their coaches know they have the potential to surprise some people. It is our distinct privilege to discover this for ourselves through following the sport as avid cross country fans.
With that being said, I am going to prognosticate some of the athletes that we feel could make some noise across the state. Some of these are in their particular team's classification while others are athletes that could impact the statewide rankings.
Is there someone that I am going to miss? FOR SURE! For that, I apologize. Like I have mentioned in previous articles, PROVE ME WRONG.
