2023 NY Girls XC Preview: Class D

Individual Snapshots - Section by Section - Top Team Breakdowns

Quick Look

Two 8th graders made up the top four finishers at States in 2022, with another one graduating, leaving only the reigning State Champion Brynn Bernard to mention. That's the field that makes up the race again in 2022, and Bernard's motivation to repeat is only increased by the high ranking of her team heading into the Season. But that team competition is wide open, with defending champs Voorheesville losing plenty to graduation.

South Lewis is favorited on paper, but thin ranks makes their position at the top precarious. CSP and more are waiting in the wings, close enough to present a strong challenge for the throne.
