There is a reason most of the state's best cross country teams also have the best JV teams - because depth matters. Depth is a fundamental necessity to building a program. It is the depth, not the stars, that develop the culture. Depth will step up when those ahead of them falter, or go down. And depth will direct the future, as every JV runner could providentially, when their opportunity arises, be a leader and a star even if they aren't one of the team's seven fastest.
