The Team of The Century? Loudoun Valley Enters as Heavy Favorites

Poll: Toughest Classification To Win States

Change has come and there has definitely been a power shift in the state. Unlike track it looks like size isn't as important as program history during XC. Check out the polls below and let us know what you are thinking about the new classifications and rankings for this season.

Preseason Countdown: Boys' Individual #4

Now with a state title to his name in track and having made Foot Locker Nationals, Price Owens is ready to break thru and win that XC state title. He enters the season with the fastest personal best and as one of the fastest returners in years with his 15:07 best.

Preseason Countdown: Girls' Individual #6

Ailene may not be the quickest returning athlete but she very well could have the most upside. She has run 17:49 for 5K and most impressively went 10:48 as a frosh in the two mile two years ago. Those two times tell us one big thing, she loves the flat fast courses. That speed will bode well for her this season and that is why have her ranked 6th in our top returning list.
