2020 Idaho Boy's XC Preview

Our neighbors to the east in Idaho have high school sports going on, and meets have even started this week.

For this fall, The Runner WA will be traveling to the Potato State with the intention of covering high school cross country in Idaho. It will be a new experience and I can't wait for the opportunity to get started.

With that being said, to get you familiar with Idaho's best, here are five lists of the top runners in each classification from Idaho to watch for this fall on the boys side.
