We are a mere one week away from the official start to the fall athletic season, but the anticipation for cross country has been building since last the last season ended. Last year, Minnesota was again well-represented on the national stage thanks to outstanding seasons from Wayzata and Edina at the team level, and Alex Miley and Seth Eliason made waves individually as well. But those successes encompass a mere microcosm of what made last year so great.
The 2017 season promises to be great as well. Titles are ready to be defended, young teams are eager to start dynasties, and the "Section of Death" promises to be just as deadly as ever. There is a lot to talk about in these coming days before the first races get underway, so let us begin by highlighting ten of the top Class AA boys teams that we think are poised to have big years.
Good luck to each of these teams!
