The Spartans pushed the reset button with a young core and a new coach, and it got them 3rd in the DMR at nationals. Will they contend this fall?
The Indians have a budding star and potential for superb depth, and that makes them my sleeper team in the CIF-SS this fall.
The Lancers suffered the loss of a potent senior class, but still have a strong team to build around for the fall.
The Lancers have excellent depth and have been very consistent through a turbulent time, but they still have work to do.
The Thunderbirds have shown immense potential, but they haven't shown as much progress as some other teams. Which picture do we focus on?
The Lancers had the top frosh-soph group in Division 5 in 2019, but we have questions about their depth for 2021.
The Red Devils are set for another close battle with an NCS D5 rival, but they have several things in their favor.
The Dolphins have a senior star, but are actually quite a young team. Will it all come together this fall?
The Bobcats have the top returning 1-2-3 punch in the state, and that makes them competitive beyond the Division 4 title chase.
The Cardinals showed enough in their limited spring to convince us they will stay firmly on top of the CIF-SF mountain.
The Cougars produced little XC data this past winter, but their results on the track show a talented young core.
The Panthers have the best individual in the section AND more depth than any other contender, so they won't concede the throne any time soon.
The Cardinals have only had one season of racing since the fall of 2019, but they are still the team to beat in San Francisco.
The Vikings have a strong senior class, but a sophomore and a junior led the way this past winter.
The Bulldogs are poised to hold onto their Oakland Section crown for an interrupted streak of 7 years, but depth is a big concern.
The Warriors have had to reset almost completely since 2019, but they return to Division 3 and will contend there.
The Chargers are deep and young, and they could contend in 2021 - but watch out for them in 2022.
The Titans showed depth during track season and they have the top runner in the section, but they will still have a fight on their hands this fall.
The Panthers have immense talent at the front of their pack, but need to work on depth if they want to defend their 2019 state title.
When you combine the Dolphins' strong returning core from 2019 with a talented freshman from 2021, you have a winning formula in the LACS.
The Panthers have a strong rising senior class that should keep them on track for a championship this fall.
The Broncos posted a strong returning team ranking in the winter, but a mixed bag of track results in the spring - which team will we see in the fall?
