I ran this article at the end of last season and think it is appropriate to bring it back.
With the 2011 cross country season fresh on our minds, let's look forward to 2012 cross country season and the 50 fastest returning West Virginia boys. Jacob Burcham again tops the list as he has for the two previous years. However, many seniors were in the 2011 race and this leaves a bunched field for the next spot. Only 15 seconds separate the next 5 returners after Burcham. This is an early observation, but take note that Cabell Midland has 4 of the top 10 returners.
