During the month of August, PennTrackXC is giving you wall-to-wall coverage of the upcoming XC season!
While much of the season is up in the air due to the coronavirus pandemic with many invitationals getting canceled and many conferences and leagues taking non-traditional approaches to the season (or canceling all together), we're still committed to giving you all the same preview content. These rankings and previews will reflect a normal XC season. The season might not look like we're used to and it may change on the fly, but you can still look at these previews as "hypothetical."
With our rankings, you'll get an "objective," stat-based look at each PIAA district in the state, and with our breakdowns, we'll give some "subjective" thoughts on the action you can expect this fall! Keep track of all our 2020 XC preview content HERE!
Now we break down the action that's to come in District 9 on the girls' side.
The Saint Marys Area girls go for their fifth straight district title on the team side, while Punxsy's Olivia Roberts go for the individual district repeat after a big junior season last year. In A, Cheyenne Mehl won last year as a freshman and she's back to defend her title as a sophomore, and the North Clarion squad looks to get the team title repeat.
Check out breakdowns below.
