Having a lowstick tends to be very crucial for team success. Getting low points out of a top runner have proven to be pivotal for teams in close team battles throughout the years.
As we enter the postseason, we will frequently see how having a strong No. 1 can pay off in big way. But what if we take away that top runner from each team.
Using the database, we took out each team's No. 1 runner based on top 5K time of the season. Then we scored it like a normal cross country meet using the remaining four runner's top 5K times this season. We listed the top 100 squads from runners 2 to 5. Check out the results in the links below.
