Isaac Roberts will look to lead Lyons to a title defense against Levi Kilian and Heritage Christian.

UPDATED 8/11/2018

Cross Country is a lifestyle in Lyons. They've won five of the last state team titles, and if they want to make it six of seven, they'll have to take down Heritage Christian, who area *actually* the favorite heading into the season. 

Levi Kilian was the missing piece of my original 2A preview. He had to sit out last year's cross country season due to an athletic transfer. This changes quite a bit. Kilian was the 1A state champion in the 800, 1600, and 3,200 this past May. So, while he did have to sit out last year's cross country season, he made up for it with his three state titles in the spring.

Kilan will lead teammate Seth Bruxvoort, who will likely battle Isaac Roberts, and Jaden Evans for the individual title. Evans finished there here last year, while Bruxvoort was fifth. Both had solid outdoor track seasons. Evens tallied two fourth-place finishes at state, while Bruxvoort finished second in the 3,200, and third in the 1,600 in 1A.

Roberts, who comes from a long line of stellar runners from the same household, leads Lyons, who took the state title last year. He finished second last year as a sophomore, and is the top returner by just over 20 seconds. He put together a stellar track season as well, finishing second in the 3,200, and third in the 1,600.

The Team Competition

On paper *Heritage Christian* can potentially all three scoring runners into the top six. Lyons, who'll likely be challenge to defend their title, looks like they could put their three into the top-nine. This is going to be a very, very low scoring affair, and every tiny little movement will make or break a state title, or a runner-up finish.

Heritage Christian returns five of their top six from last year's state meet, and adds three-time state champion Kilan.

On paper we're looking at a difference of eight points. Every runner will count, and Lyons will need Roberts to score the coveted one point. Likewise, Kilan and Bruxvoort could put Heritage Christian over the top in the team race.
