Dylan Jacobs after an 11th-place finish at Foot Locker Nationals.

Cross country is right around the corner. Coming off a season in which senior superstars such as Cooper Teare, Reed Brown, and Casey Clinger took their places among some of the best athletes in high school history, is there even a chance the 2017 senior class can challenge the greats of the 2016 XC season?

Below is a chart comparing the top 100 fastest times from last year's incoming seniors and the rising class of 2017:

Fastest time:
       -2017: Brodey Hasty, 14:32.20          
       -2016: Casey Clinger, 14:42.00
    
Time needed to crack into the top 100:
        -2017: Cameron Ponder, 15:31.12
        -2016: Christopher Rayder, 15:29.88
      
Number of boys under 15:00:
        -2017: 9
        -2016: 9
   
Average of top 10 times:
        -2017: 14:53.798
        -2016: 14:53.893

  
After comparing four categories above, it appears the incoming senior class of 2017 just edges out the incoming senior class of 2016. This could be an indication that this upcoming cross country season could be even more historic than last year's season.

Check out the list below to see who could be next to go down in the record books.
