If we are going by track times then you are leaving out some teams that ran much better than Oneonta, Ithaca, St Lawrence, RIT, etc.
Track times do not translate to XC results:
Ivan Frantz: 2018 8k: 26:49, 2019 5k: 14:53
Ethan McDonald: 2018 8k: 25:34, 2019 3k: 9:17
Nick Vielhauer: 2018 8k: 24:59, 2019 5k: 15:59
Otto Kingstedt: 2018 8k: 25:12, 2019 3k: 8:50
Something doesn't add up there and there are many more examples out there. So many people are good at XC 8ks and bad at track races and vise versa.
