It has been a bit boom or bust for Arcadia over the last 5 years at the state meet: after back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013, the Apaches didn't make it there at all in 2014, then 8th in 2015. Last year they fell short once again, finishing 12th in the Southern Section finals. if the pattern holds true, Arcadia will be back in the top 10 again this fall. The 2017 squad is shaping up to have a potent pack, with several runners that have posted similar times (both from last fall and from the spring). This is one of the proudest and most successful programs in the state, but the Apaches will need to have a very strong summer in terms of cultivating young depth if they want to live up to their full potential. It's always hard to get a fix on this team coming out of the spring because track season has not bee a priority for the cross country program, but I don't think Arcadia will be out of the state meet two years in a row.
