TN XC Division Breakdown: Div. 1 Large Schools Girls


Division One Large Schools always has a close team battle.

And this year...it's going to be tight.

Sasha Neglia is gone to graduation. She's a North Carolina Tarheel now. And her Dobyns Bennett squad only returns three runners from last year's team.

Everyone else in last year's top ten has at least four runners coming back from their state meet top seven.

Brentwood High School and Farragut High School come in as the favorites this year.

Both teams return their entire top seven from last year's state meet. And each of them have a strong number one runner.

Check out our full breakdown right here -- we're ready for XC to get started!
