Niwot's Taylor James is the top returner in a stacked 2019 field. 

Three schools have a total of eight of the top 10 returners for 2019. 

This means we've got another hotly contested battle on our hands...

Defending state champs Niwot led by the No. 1 returner, Taylor James, have three in the top eight, Battle Mountain has three in the top 10, and Eagle Valley has two in the top five. 

James is a favorite in returning, and her post-season run at NXN only adds to this. But she won't be alone. You can never count out the sister duo of Joslin Blair and Samantha Blair, who were two of the fastest in the state heading into State this year. The individual race will be no stroll, that much is clear. 

And what about the teams?

We had a nail-biter this year between Niwot and Battle Mountain, and next year looks like a battle will wage on, but perhaps with new squads. 

Niwot and Battle Mountain return four from their 2018 squads, meaning the door is open for someone else to step in. 

Air Academy and Centaurus look up for the challenge, as both squads return at least five (Centaurus returns six). On paper Air Academy is in the best spot to be the favorite next year, but not by much.
