The last (or rather, first) word on XC

The final task of the 2008 cross country season is to preview 2009. I annually take the state results, discard the seniors and rescore the meet to get a preseason ranking for the following season. It’s an inexact science that doesn’t figure in next year’s freshmen (which is impossible to do anyway, but will be a major factor for the girls) and potential reclassification.

Anyway, here are next year’s top 10s.
