2023 NY Boys XC Preview: CHSAA

CHSAA Preview

Top individuals    Top Teams Breakdown

Saint Anthony's was the story of 2022, taking major wins abroad and within the lines of New York State. They had a strong compression, on top of interchangeability within the Top 5, demonstrated by a rotating order of finishes from their top guys. All of this led to one of the smallest point totals ever at the Catholic Champs, buffeted by an Individual title to boot.

One year later, and more than half of that team has graduated. It still gives Saint Anthony's a strong baseline to create a new squad around, but the field is closer than it has been. Jack Morelli is the top returner in the Federation, and in fact, Saint Anthony's had the only returners in the entire Top 5 finishers. That said, Xavier has always been a constant threat, and the potential is there for a challenge. Everyone is in search for that ever-valuable 5th man, and the team that strikes gold at that position will take home the crown.
