North Coast Section XC Season Preview

Next up in our section preview series is the North Coast Section. This has been one of the most successful sections at the State Meet outside of the Southern Section. When you look at the number of team titles along with individual podium finishes in the State Meet era, it is very difficult to find another section with that same level of success (Christopher Middleton-Pearson of Dublin above in file photo).

On the next five pages, you will see our pre-season preview of all five divisions with the help of several assistant coaches. Thank you also to the many coaches that emailed me their thoughts on the upcoming season and it's always refreshing to hear their perspective and honest projections for the fall.

Finally, check out our Division II preview which includes notes on the recent retirement of longtime coach, Laura Schmitt. 

If you have any additional information for the upcoming season, please feel free to chime in the comment section below.
