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!
Today we break down the ones to watch in PIAA District 7, AKA the WPIAL, on the girls' side.
Mia Cochran is the defending AAA state champion, and her and Emily Carter will be two of the state's most exciting girls to watch for this fall. North Allegheny goes for its third straight AAA team title, but will face some tough tests from a number of teams within the WPIAL. Interesting team battles are brewing in A and AA, while Corinn Brewer is the favorite in A and Jolena Quarzo is the one to beat in AA individually.
Check out breakdowns below.
