Coming in at #3 on our NCISAA XC Countdown is Coastal Christian High School!
The runner-ups at last season's NCISAA 3A State Meet, this Coastal Christian squad is ready to take the throne this season. They are lead by defending individual state champion Isaiah Arnold and 3rd place finisher Nicholas Scrocco. Arnold had a breakout performance at the state meet and looks forward to this season to show that his state title is no fluke. Scrocco and Arnold have a legitimate chance of finishing 1-2 in the 3A State Meet this season. They both come into the season as Top 10 overall NCISAA runners. They're 3-4 punch has the potential to be great, and even both All-State as well. Vince Bottiglier was 12th last season at the state meet and is ready to move up even further now as a junior. With him and battling for the team's #3 spot will be senior Caleb Fargo. Sophomore Caleb Cottle was only 5 places behind Fargo at the State Meet, so look for the underclassman to make great strides this season. This team definitely has what it takes to walk home with a NCISAA 3A State Championship at the end of the season, but they want to be not only the best in 3A, but the best in the NCISAA, period.
