During the month of August, PennTrackXC is giving you wall-to-wall coverage of the upcoming cross country season! We'll be going through each district, previewing the top teams and individuals. We will be starting with a look at the team battles and then moving on to individuals in the second half of the month.
With our rankings, you'll get an "objective" stat-based look at each district, and with our breakdowns, we'll give some "subjective" thoughts on the action you can expect this fall! Keep track of all of our 2018 XC preview content HERE!
Who are the top PAISAA individuals coming into this season?
We already took a look at the top teams in each district, and now we will take a look at the top individuals. These rankings were compiled using only 5,000 meter performances from last XC season in our database. The listed performances are each athlete's fastest 5K from last season regardless of the course. We listed the top 100 per classification, unless there are less than 100 performances.
Check out the rankings, broken up by classification, below:
