XC Countdown 2022: #17 Camden Hills Boys

Maine MileSplit 2022 XC Team Countdown

With the calendar switching to August soon we wanted to switch gears from the track to the trails to get ready for the upcoming cross-country season. Athletes around the state are hitting the roads and trails building up a strong base in hopes of a successful cross-country in 2022, with the hopes of lifting the state championship as a team in November the ultimate goal. Our plan is to highlight who we think are the top 25 returning girls and boys xc teams over the next three weeks. Thanks to Cheverus XC/track coach Nick Denari for volunteering his time and efforts to put this countdown together.

Walker Hedrich was only athlete to compete in the stat meet for Camden Hills last fall.

2022 Outlook:

The Windjammers are our highest ranked team that did not qualify for the State Championships in 2021. How will they do so this year? By bringing back all of their top 9 athletes from a squad that narrowly missed a year ago. Walker Hedrich was one of the best freshmen in the State in 2021 and will look to lead the way yet again for Camden Hills. Zachary Clement may very well be right there with him after having run 4:48 for 1600m and 10:44 for 3200m in the spring of 2022. Watch out! Camden Hills could be a legit title threat in 2023. They have no seniors in their top 5 entering this season.
