USA XC Rankings, 2012, Boys Individuals; as of 10/3

MileSplit’s Top 25 National XC Rankings, 2012; Boys Individuals

These rankings are based on 2011 XC and 2012 T&F distance performances, and project where athletes will be at the end of the 2012 cross country season.  Incoming freshman were not yet considered.  Future rankings will be based on relative accomplishments during the season, particularly in head-to-head competitions.  (Editor's note: It has been well-documented that Edward Cheserek is concentrating on the SAT this fall.  If he races this fall he will be placed in the rankings, but others will take his place from this release on until he begins his season.)
