When it comes down to the girl's teams, just about anyone has a shot to step this year. Xavier looks to be the favorite team this year on paper, but cross country has proven over the past few years that anything can happen. The Chanlder girls, similar to Xavier, will be returning a few impressive runners and show to be a pretty powerful team this season. As of now, the teams seem to be pretty even.
