Now that some schools have be rearranged,many of our earlier preseason rankings are now obsolete. Here is our updated look at the returning boys teams for the 2018 cross country season. With Desert Vista graduating six Seniors, Highland and Brophy will be the top contenders for the State Title in 2018. Both return five from their teams at the State Championships last month. A slight edge might go to Brophy based on their 1-5 spread of 59 seconds among their returners. They'll look to Jose Acuna (So.) and Anekin Hetman (Jr.) as their low-sticks for the 2018 season. Meanhwile, Leo Daschbach will be the returning State champion and with help from Caden Resendez (So.) and Alec Rinsem (Fr.) the Hawks could find it in them to edge out the Broncos come November 2018.
