Top Returnees From 2016 Meet


The Dulaney boys were once again the cream of the Baltimore County crop in 2016, cruising to their fourth straight team title on their home course and defending their regional and state titles. They don't have any plans to relinquish those titles in 2017, either, because their entire varsity seven from last year will be back for this fall. (Photo by John Roemer)

Rising senior Matt Owens is the top returner after finishing second at the county meet last season. His sixth-place finish at the 4A state championships was a huge reason why Dulaney defended their team title by one point over Severna Park. They will need to bring the firepower once again this fall as Severna Park also returns their varsity seven from the state meet.

The Hereford boys team featured many strong freshmen last season, but their lone representative among the top ten returnees is rising senior Dillon Coffey, who finished 12th place at the 2A state meet during his sophomore season.

Speaking of those freshmen, Hereford saw its youth movement gain momentum during the spring track season. Drew Turnbaugh, the 2A North 3200 champion, led four freshman boys who ran under 11 minutes for the event during the spring.

Making his way onto the top ten returnee list is Towson rising junior Liam Jones. He came on strong at the end of his inaugural cross country campaign, placing 40th at the 3A state championships. Jones will be a big key for the Generals who graduated their top four runners from 2016.
