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.
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 2019 XC preview content HERE!
How will things play out in the PAISAA this season? Using last year's data we can get an idea of the top teams and individuals.
The individual rankings go 200 deep, or however many returners are back in that district/classification For the team rankings, each team must have at least 5 returners from the previous season to qualify for the list.
These rankings are time-based, using each athlete's best 5K XC time from the previous season. Cross country is, of course, not all about time because of different course layouts and conditions. The rankings are meant to give an idea of the top teams and individuals in each district. We are also breaking down each district from a more subjective angle throughout the summer. You can find all of the PennTrackXC cross country previews in one spot HERE.
