Below are the top 25 fastest returning boys cross country teams in the state of Maine generated based off the 2016 season best 5K cross country times in the MileSplit database from each of the team's top 7 returnees.

Class A Deering leads the way based off last year's marks. The Rams have two front runners in Yahya Nure & Alex Troxell, plus some quality depth behind them. They were the Class A runner-up in 2016.

Class B Lincoln Academy made a splash a year ago, and with a year off experience under their belts look for them to be one of the best teams in the state. They have 5 guys back that ran 17:30 or faster a year ago.

Defending Class A champion Falmouth is back strong once again as they look to make it two in a row.

Yarmouth with Luke Laverdiere out front expect to be contend for a Class B title.
