The vast majority of high school runners never make it into the top 7 for their school. But JV runners are important, too! Depth is a huge part of any successful cross country program, and the runners in the JV or Frosh/Soph races this fall can become the top varsity squads in 2018. For that reason, we're spending the next two weekends ranking California's deepest programs. This weekend, we look at the "Second Seven" - the runners that rank 8th through 14th for their team. Many schools consider these runners their second varsity squad or their B Team (like with relays on the track), and they can be a huge indication of the current and future success of the program!
Flip through the slides to see the top three "Second Seven" squads for boys and girls, using three different distances to try to capture all the developing talent out there!
