Coach: Jeff Sanborn
Last year: Unranked, fifth in MIAA
Outlook: The Eagles enter the outdoor season after winning the MIAA indoors on the strength of Justin Gross and lots of depth. They'll have a shot at winning again outdoors.
2. Archbishop Curley
Coach: Gene Hoffman
Last year: No. 4, second in MIAA
Outlook: The Friars have a good combination of talent and depth. Sprinter George Chambers should lead the way as they'll be one of the MIAA's top teams.
Coach: Jason Bowman
Last year: Unranked, 12th in Class 3A
Outlook: The Bulls have been strong all year, winning the Baltimore County title indoors, nearly getting it in cross country and taking sixth in the state in Class 3A indoors. They're getting stronger in field events, which helps in postseason meets.
Coach: Dion Hylton
Last year: Unranked, fourth in Baltimore County championship
Outlook: Matthew Rever led the Lions to a strong season indoors, where they finished eighth in the Class 4A state meet. They're always good in distance events and have balance, but their biggest problem is being in Class 4A.
Coach: Phil Rogers
Last year: Unranked, 10th in Class 3A
Outlook: Reservoir had a great indoor season, where it finished second in the state in Class 3A. Yao Adantor (shot put) and Chris Yamoah (high jump) won state titles as Reservoir nearly won the team crown.
Coach: Brianna Kelly
Last year: Unranked, 15th in Class 4A
Outlook: The Bruins can score all over the place. That balance helped them win the Anne Arundel County indoor meet, take ninth in Class 4A at the state meet and will make them tough again this spring.
Coach: Jose Albornoz
Last year: Unranked, sixth in MIAA
Outlook: Loyola has improved a lot since last year. The Dons are very strong in distance running, led by Matt Jablonski. They'll make noise in the MIAA if they can find points in other places.
Coach: Johnnie Foreman
Last year: No. 1, first in MIAA
Outlook: The Greyhounds have lost talent from last year's MIAA championship team but still have some punch. The big question is how competitive they can be this spring.
Coach: Stephen Kines
Last year: Unranked, 4th in Class 1A s
Outlook: The Bears were the biggest surprise in indoor track, winning the Baltimore City, region and Class 1A state title. They're very deep and could do it again outdoors.
Coach: Steve Williams
Last year: No. 5, third in Class 2A
Outlook: The Engineers don't have quite as much firepower as last year and had to move up to Class 3A. But Williams knows how to maneuver the lineup to find points.
Others considered: Chesapeake-AA (No. 9), Glenelg (unranked), Mervo (unranked), Northwestern (unranked), Severna Park unranked)
