Saucony Flo50 Pre-Season Girls XC Team Rankings Countdown

Don't bet against Fayetteville-Manlius. The nine-time NXN champions return three scorers - which is less than most of the rest of the top ten ranked teams - but they have a habit of developing fresh talent every year. One of their returners is Claire Walters, a rising sophomore who shocked many by winning the New York state title.
