By Joanna Chadwick

City League boys cross country is holding strong — Carroll first in 5A, Kapaun third and North second in 6A.

In City League girls, Carroll is first in 5A, Kapaun fifth.

AV-CTL girls are strong, too — Maize South third in 4A, Rose Hill 7th; Valley Center third in 5A, Maize fifth in 6A.

On the boys side, Andale and Mulvane boys are sixth and third in 4A, respectively, while Maize is fifth in 6A.

These are the top teams, but who are the top individuals? Why are they runners we should be watching?
