Ranking The Fastest XC State Meets Of The Past 15 Years

The past four years have been a whirlwind of State Meet Courses. In 2020, the XC State Meet was canceled for the first time ever. The year before, the course was re-routed due to an overnight snowstorm. And the two years prior to that, unprecedented course conditions at Wayne, and the hilly terrain of Sunken Meadow led to two of the slowest State Meets in history.

How does Chenango Valley stack up?

We did the math, excluding 2019, to see which courses have been the quickest. These may not be the fastest winning times, but the average runner in the field was top among the ranks.
