The AIS league for the NYC area independent schools will again be trying to upstage that other big race in the city on Marathon Sunday. Trinity, Collegiate, and Hackley are expected to be battling at the top for the boys in the morning at Van Cortlandt Park, and Poly Prep, Trinity, and Hackley will be going at it on the girls' side. Both of last year's individual champs -- Tobias Wolfson and Lauryn Heskin -- are back to defend their titles.
As always, please note that neither the speed ratings based listings of teams nor the 5K time virtual meet scores are meant to be exact predictions of how a race will turn out since there are many unknown factors at work here. The virtual meets based on 5K times are never a very good summary for any XC event, but they are even worse for the AIS since some of the teams have not run any 5K races and like the Horace Mann guys and Trinity girls are left out of the ratings. But use the links to the 5K scorecard if you wish to get some minimal information about the teams.
