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!
Here, we break down the action that's to come in PIAA District 9 for the boys.
Punxsutawney Area goes for three straight team titles and has the individual favorite in Aiden McLaughlin, but both will receive challenges this season. Meanwhile in A, Cranberry looks for the repeat title, as a good individual battle is brewing between Matt Woolcock and Joe Wolfe.
Check out breakdowns below.
