Carter Dillon came on strong for Mountain Vista this past school year and could figure as the go-to guy this fall.

The idea here is simple. We go through each classification and gender and look at rankings scored as a cross country meet for:

1. Last year's returning runners.

2. Returning 1600 runners from this spring.

3. Returning 3200 runners from this spring.

Each of these three ways of looking at the rankings has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Each sheds a little bit of light that the other two don't shed. There is no perfect picture of what this fall will hold, but the combination of these three sets of rankings will give us about as good of a look as we can get right now. In each case, I'm including just the top 15 teams for each set of rankings.

I'm putting each set of rankings on a separate page without a lot of comments to go along with them. For the most part, it will be up to you to supply your own thoughts on these rankings. I'll go more into depth with a lot of the top teams over the next month-and-a-half.

Shown below are the rankings of returning runners from last year.

Easton Allred didn't actually run cross country for Rock Canyon last fall, but he did run some post-season cross country and figures to be part of the Rock Canyon program this fall. So, his inclusion in the rankings above should help enhance the accuracy of these rankings.

Monarch took the state title last fall, but the Coyotes have some holes to fill. Be assured that work is already going into filling those very holes.
