2012 NJ High School XC Poll - Week 2

2012 NJ High School XC Poll

Week 2

 

With a much more robust slate of meets this past weekend, the season is really underway. The decisions on the NJRunners were in no way simple as during the early part of any season , the races are largely class races and many are contested over odd distances. Results were varied, but our panelists broke them down, crunched the numbers and NJR presents the fruits of their labors.

With the vast differences in types of races and distances, we will hold off on commentary until next week's edition.

We would love to know what you think and what your Top Tens might be. Please feel free to add your comments / lists at the Forum topic on the front page. Enjoy!

    Thanks

    i agree with it all but i truly think mendham and millburn deserve a spot. both mendham and millburn have a very strong team. even without Blake Udland Millburn is still a great team that could contend with some of these teams like freehold and holmdel. I also feel that Mendham is in the same position as millburn.

    Thanks

    I agree about Mendham. RIGHT NOW they are in my top 10 (and I am one of the panel). I don't see how they can be left out. Millburn is a very good team.
