Postseason: 13th in Class 4A state meet
Outlook: The Lions are loaded in distance running. They won the Class 4A state title in cross country, which also should make them tough to beat in distance and relays. If they can find some points in shorter races, Dulaney will be very hard to deal with.
Postseason: 8th in Class 2A state meet
Outlook: Once again, the Bulls should be able to score a lot of points in a lot of ways. Distance should be their strong point, but their versatility, led by people like Michael Nash, will make them tough.
Postseason: 1st in MIAA championship meet
Outlook: The Greyhounds always have depth and talent in track and field. That amount of talent always pushes them to the top of the MIAA A Conference in indoor and outdoor track and should do so once again.
4. Mount Saint Joseph
Postseason: no team points in MIAA championship meet
Outlook: Like a number of other local teams, the Gaels will rely heavily on distance and relays, thanks to runners like Alex Whittaker. The big question is how much help they can get from other places like sprints and field events because their distance lineup is solid.
5. Severna Park
Postseason: Tied for 10th in Class 4A state meet
Outlook: The Falcons again will be led by a solid group of distance runners. But they usually find a way to come up with points in other areas, and if so, this team could be tough.
6. River Hill
Postseason: Tied for 3rd in Class 3A state meet
Outlook: The Hawks are coming off a spectacular cross country season. Rahul Reddy led the way as they won the Class 3A state title, but they'll need to find more points in sprints and field events indoors.
Postseason: no team points in Class 4A state meet
Outlook: The Lions have become very competitive in the tough Class 4A. They've got the depth to make noise. The question is how much they can accomplish.
Postseason: 18th in Class 2A state meet
Outlook: In cross country, the Lions won a second straight Class 2A state title. But they lose top runner Nick Tilson (basketball) indoors. Still, they've got a deep team, especially in distance.
Postseason: 3rd in MIAA championship meet
Outlook: Dalton Hengst and Lucas Wright give the Eagles a great 1-2 combination in distance events. They'll just need to support that with help in other parts of the lineup.
Postseason: Tied for 29th in Class 3A state meet
Outlook: The Generals ran well throughout cross country, led by Jonathan Ellis. If their distance runners help like in the fall, they'll be in the mix somewhere.
