Cross Country is just about approaching Championship Season, and most teams cards are all out on the table. As usual, we've had some breakout performances already, both by storied competitors, and fresh new faces. We poured through the results, and picked out 8 athletes we think have had the most mercurial rises. These are athletes who have jumped at least 40 places or more in the Overall State Rankings by Speed Rating, in addition to those that have taken big jumps relative to their marks on the track.
Check out the 8 athletes you'll want to know about moving forward.
