Welcome to the 2018 cross country season! Last year was quite the turnaround with Tolono (Unity) barely easing past as pre-season #1 St. Joseph-Ogden for the state championship. In 2016, it was the exact opposite. Of course, no one can perfectly predict a state champion or even all 25 teams that will toe the Detweiller starting line on November 3. We will attempt this nearly month-long of team previews from our point of view. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
Unclassified means teams not quite in the top 25 or ranked, but are on the verge of being noticed by the masses. Unclassified teams are dangerous because they have a chip on their shoulders and will do anything and everything to prove everyone wrong.
