Loaded Sectional Field Forming in Pre-Season Rankings
It's hard to fathom that 9 of the Top 16 schools running cross country for 2A Boys are going to meet at the Belvidere Sectional this fall. According to DyeStatIL's POLL, our program ranks 13th to start the season. In a separate poll on MileSplit IL, we are 17th. It really doesn't matter where we rank in this mix. There are multiple teams in our corner of the state which are going to be extremely tough to race with come October and November. We must continue to do all the little things to help stay fit, healthy, sharp, prepared, and fast. When comparing the two polls, neither could agree on the strength of Vernon Hills, who would be a 10th team in the the arguable Top 17 of 2A this year. The great part is, we don't send teams to Detweiler based on polls in August. Those teams who earn it are putting in the work in June and July, pushing through the aches in August and September, then rolling with momentum through October and into the first week of November. One day at a time, boys. But make no mistake, there are MANY who are working hard for their shot at November. Make sure you give your all to this process.
