New York Girls State XC Final Rankings

End of Season Finale

The XC season for team competition wound up with a New York squad winning the NXN National championship for the 12th time since the first meet in 2004 as Fayetteville-Manlius captured its 10th title. The Hornets were at the top in the state rankings for the full season, but that was the only rock of stability among the leaders as Saratoga, North Rockland, Shenendehowa, and Shoreham-Wading River all made bids for the second spot, culminating in a result that would not have been expected at the beginning of the season.

The rankings are based for the most part on how the teams performed in their final meet of the season, which for the great majority of teams was their section's state qualifier meet or the Federation championship for the New York City schools, but for the top schools also includes the state championship or the NXN-NY regional meet. However, some teams competed in the Federation championship without one or two key runners, so we have tried our best to balance out the performances for teams that participated in more than one post season meet. Liverpool is a prime example of a team that got a boost above its sectional result because of stronger performances in the Federation and NXN-NY meets.

After a truly fun time following the NY teams during a challenging and tumultuous year, we're ready to get going on the next one, which is just around the winter-spring-summer corner. Cheers to all.
