The 2018 cross country season has arrived and to predict the top individuals and teams this season, we're releasing watchlists for each category.
To get a fuller picture of how returning athletes might fare this year, I used lists of the Top Returning D3 Boys Teams for 5km, the Top Returning D3 Boys Teams for 3200m, and the Top Returning D3 Boys Teams for 1600m to rank teams based on consistent performances over the past year. We continue with the Division III Boys Teams and are working down to Division I Boys Teams.

This fall the Page Sand Devils will pursue their fifth consecutive State Title at Cave Creek Golf Course, led by one of the lowest sticks in the State, Bowen Martin. They opened their season this weekend with a perfect score at the Pizza Edge Twilight CC Meet in Kayenta. Hoping to upset Page are Chinle and Tuba City who return six and five of their respective seven-man squads from State.
Here's our subjective list of Division III Boys Teams to watch over the 2018 cross-country season beginning with a few honorable mentions and counting down to our top pick.
