If you want to be the best you have to beat the best. With that being said all roads run through Miami Northwestern.

The Bolles girls are back to defend their 2016 2A track and field state championship and the Bulldogs don't lack depth in any event.

The Bolles girls are looking for their second 2A state title in three years. The Bulldogs were runner-up in 2015 behind Hallandale and won it all in 2014. No question the strength of Coach Dearing's squad is the distance events. The cross country state champions will be guided by Tony Ryan and rack up a slew of points while Tiera Cleveland is a triple threat in the 100,200, and 400. Defending champion Hallandale's loss of Kimani Rushing to early enrollment at the University of Florida opens up the door for a handful of teams to compete for the runner-up spot. We rank EVERY team.
Ransom Everglades senior Lauren Archer is one of the most versatile distance runners in the state owning personal bests of 2:12.20 (800m), 5:00.33 (1,600m), and 18:34.00 (5K).

Gabriel Correa of Ransom Everglades was fifth last year and is the top returner with a time of 16:00.82. If Correa can win it all, he will join Bert Irigoyen (2011 and 2012) as well as Billy Convey (1980,1981,1982) in the line of Raider's champions.

"Hot pants." That's what Bert Irigoyen's fellow band members call him when he isn't putting up blazing times on the cross country course. The Ransom Everglades senior leads a sort of double life: state champion runner and the hardcore drummer.
Belen Jesuit pack a punch this season! Four of their top five return with plenty of firepower to fill in the gap and then some. Elliot Clemente will lead the way (likely for the entire state) with his 15:03 season best from last year, pacing Belen to a 15:58 team average. Colonial and Estero ring in at a somewhat distant but certainly not insurmountable #2 and #3 position in our computer rankings.
Jason has been looking for more South Florida XC coverage this season and due to the lack of interest I decided I would try to put a few articles together for everyone. And seeing as how I was without a computer last week I figured I would put together a 10-Day Recap of what’s been going on with cross country here in Miami-Dade County. (I really wanted to put together a nice write up of the GMAC Championship last week, so I’ll start off with that and lead into the various district championships from this past week). Now without further delay, here’s what’s been happening down south…
Belen Jesuit may be favored on paper, but a little reality check shows it's much closer. Tampa Jesuit may have its leader back afterall and give rise to the Tigers' title hopes to upset Belen. That is if Bishop Kenny doesn't upset them both! It's going to be a hot one!
