You've seen my countdown, from 30 to 1. Now tell me what you think by voting inside!
The Wolfpack have stats that go beyond being a Division 1favorite - these are the numbers of a national title contender.
Between great returning runners, a massive track season, and a door opening just a bit wider state-wide this fall, the Bears have a legitimate title shot.
Jack Landgraf leads a potent Dolphin squad that has enough returning depth to make another run at the Division 1 title.
After losing 5 of 7 from the team that won their 6th straight title, the Wolfpack has to be down at least a little bit in 2017, right? Well...
With senior leaders like Raymon Ornelas and a surprisingly strong group of rising sophomores, the Mustangs could be deeper than expected.
Youngster Isabella Fauria and veteran senior Sydney Vandegrift are ready to lead the Troubadours in pursuit of the Division 2 title.
With the top returning individual from the 2016 D-1 race, another top front-runner, and outstanding depth, the Bells will be in the mix in a loaded division.
Sara Leonard is ready to tear up the competition this fall, and the Comanches have title potential in a loaded Division 2.
Sydney Hwang is a star in the making for the Wolfpack, and their depth will help replace the loss of three seniors from the defending Division 2 champs.
The Chargers saw their 2016 season end a week earlier than expected, but the potential is there for this team to be one of the best in the Southern Section in 2017.
The Falcons have a lot to like, but also some questions that need to be addressed. Will their big senior class push them over the top in 2017?
Even without returning star Kelli Hines, the Diablos will be strong. With her healthy, the team could contend in a loaded Division 2 this fall.
A proud program with two championships in the last 5 years, the Apaches have been up and down the last 3. We're betting on "up" this year.
After a roller-coaster postseason ended with a 2nd-place finish in 2016, the Centurions have 6 runners back (including 4 seniors) in search of the program's 10th title.
After a disastrous end to the 2016 season, I'm betting the Mustangs are going to be a major sleeper team this fall.
Shyam Kumar returns as the #1 runner and Colton Colonna had a great track season, so with a little depth the Lancers will be tough to beat.
McKenna Brown and Kristin Fahy are back to lead the Mavericks, and they may have a third front-runner joining them.
Despite the loss of 4 key seniors, the Warriors return enough talent to make a run at defending their section title.
The Apaches have enormous potential, and will once again be a major competitor in Division 1.
If the Rams can shore up their depth (and recent improvement history says they can) this team will be a force in Division 2.
Despite the loss of their top returner, the Thunderbirds are still a state meet team in Division 1.
The last two years have been frustrating for the Indians, who have the leadership and firepower to be in the top 10 in Division 1.
With a potential individual star, solid depth, and the prospect of having the same core top 7 compete for three years together, the Matadors are primed for success in 2017 and beyond.
The Wildcats are a puzzling mix of statistics that makes it hard to place them, but they do have a core of rising seniors that aren't finished yet.
