Western Massachusetts Division X-C Previews

Western Massachusetts Division 1 Boys

This is a division that certainly has its share of evenly-matched teams. All of the top four teams at last year's divisional championships - West Springfield, Holyoke, Northampton and Amherst-Pelham - should be back at it again this fall with equally strong squads. Individually, we could be seeing similar results at the divisionals with 20 of the top 21 finishers from the 2016-17 meet returning. Holyoke's Cameron Correia, who clocked 15:45 to win last year's individual title, has graduated. Right now several appear capable of taking over that position, including talented sophomore Jack Yanko of Amherst Pelham, Holyoke's Izaien Lugo and West Springfield's Gabriel Medina, another strong tenth-grader.
