NY's Male Cross Country All-Decade Program & Individuals

Top Boys Program Of The Decade

While all-star individuals can come and go, it takes a whole program to win a team title.  We narrowed down which team we believed was the most dominant over the past decade, regardless of individual talent, although it does help the overall strength of a program.  These teams were not only strong in a single year, but over multiple iterations within the decade, a testament to the coaching, and the talent.

Team: Fayetteville-Manlius

Head Coach: Bill Aris

Major Wins: NXN Title (2014), 5 State Titles ('11, '13, '14, '18, '19), 8 Regional Titles, 1 Manhattan Eastern

Rationale: Just like their girls, consistency is king.  They won exactly half of the State Titles of the decade, and rebounded three more times to win the Regional after not winning States.  They're the only team of the decade to win an NXN National Title,  and placed second twice in that same period.  Not only that, but check out this track record to seal the deal.
