AZMileSplit: All-Decade Boys Cross Country Teams

With other divisions, there are several candidates suitable for their respective athlete of the decade, but this one is undeniable. Jordan Black stormed his way through each course he ran. At the States, Black threw down the gauntlet to win his second consecutive State Title by almost a minute. Furthermore he set the Division IV course record and was the fastest boy at Cave Creek that Saturday.
