Who is the undisputed champ?
‘As right now’ I can provide an argument for 3 to 4 males being the greatest American high school cross country athlete ever. In fact, except for Reynolds in ’82, Reina in ’85, Kennedy in ’87, Goucher in ’93, Ritz in ’00 and Solinsky in ’02, I can give you an argument for who was truly the best in a given year. I am not talking about who won the meet, but all things being equal and under every scenario, I can think of, who was actually the best. If Lukas Verzbicas manages to pull a victory at next week’s FLNC, without a doubt he is best in 2010 and in my mind, he will be greatest American high school cross country athlete ever. Even if Lukas does not win FLNC, he will certainly be among the top 3, but if he wins, his place in history and in the 2010 season will be without debate as the greatest.
