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 will break down the boys' action in PIAA District 5 for this season!
Top individuals are the ones to watch here, with Bedford's Van May (PA#24) and Northern Bedford's Ian Zimmerman (PA#25) will look to make noise on the state stage this fall. On the team side, Northern Bedford is the team to beat in A, while Somerset will be a strong squad in AA.
Check out breakdowns below.
